Rocktopia; When Beethoven meets Led Zeppelin
Who said that classic music cannot be combined with rock music? For those in love with classic music and for those who walk in rock vibes, ROCKTOPIA is here to bring a new era in the Broadway shows. Sexy performances from the five-piece rock band, innovative sounds from the twenty five-piece orchestra and forty-member choir, all together making this show stand up from all the other in the Broadway list. A must-see show that will make you stand up from your seat and inevitably force you to start dancing and singing along with the rest of the band.
An explosive concert event that fuses the most iconic 20th-century rock with world-renowned classical masterpieces, ROCKTOPIA features the works of musical innovators across centuries—including Journey, Mozart, Queen, Beethoven, Aerosmith, Handel, Led Zeppelin, Tchaikovsky, U2, Copland, Heart, Puccini, The Who and more—performed by an elite lineup of vocalists.. ROCKTOPIA celebrates its opening night at the Broadway Theatre on Tuesday, March 27.
An inaugural performance of the show, “Rocktopia: Live from Budapest” produced by Two Hands Entertainment/Jeff Rowland, was recorded in front of a live audience in June 2016 at the 19th century Hungarian State Opera House for PBS. It was performed with the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra with six vocalists, a five-piece rock band, the Hungarian State Opera Chorus, and the Jazz and More Choir. ROCKTOPIA has since toured over twenty cities in the United States, featuring local symphonies and choirs across the country.
