After its phenomenal success in performances across European concert halls, ROCK THE OPERA is coming to Edinburgh's The Usher Hall.
Created by conductor and rock specialist Friedemann Riehle, Rock the Opera fuses the sounds of classic rock songs with a symphonic backing. Featuring hits by Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, and U2, the production maintains the power and atmosphere of the original songs, but enlarges the experience with the fantastic sound of a full symphony orchestra.
The Prague Philharmonic performs with outstanding vocal soloists – Leane Jarvis (London), Alteria (Milan), and Niki (Sofia, Bulgaria) – together with young superstars Sina on drums and Rony Janacek on guitars.
Highlights of the programme include titles such Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, and Wish You Were Here, Queen’s Under Pressure, Don't Stop Me Now, and We Are The Champions, and AC/DC’s Thunderstruck and Highway To Hell.
This crossover spectacular is not to be missed!
Friedemann Riehle, conductor of the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, said: “We are excited to finally bring ROCK THE OPERA to Scotland. This one-of-a-kind production brings the orchestra back to its historical role, performing songs loved by the audience, fusing the rock band with the incredible sounds of a full symphony orchestra.”
Let's Rock the Usher Hall!
