A Night At The Rock Opera - Review

10/30/2007 11:19:00 AM
So this past weekend, I went to opening night of "A Night At the Rock Opera" at the Wilbur Theatre and it was amazing. I didn't know what to expect prior to going, all I really knew about it was what I saw off of the Ultrasonic Rock Orchestra's website (here). But I was blown away. Twenty-three people on stage rocking out - it was very different and very cool.

I don't listen to old music. What I call old music, you may call "classic" music. I've never listened to the Beatles, the Who - old school stuff like that. I'm more of a "what's on the radio right now" type of guy. So anyway, the URO played their adaptations of a lot of "classic" music so when I first saw the program I was a little dejected. I hardly recognized any of the songs.

But when the music started, I was pleasantly surprised. Their enthusiasm and high-energy was so evident and contagious, that I didn't really mind that I didn't know the songs. I enjoyed them anyway. It was a great performance.

And yes, you're going to kill me after I admit this. They sang songs from The Who, Queen, The Beatles, David Bowie, and a few of their own songs. Number of songs I recognized out of the 28 that they performed? Two.

My favorite part of the show was the fact that the singers rotated for the various songs. Different folks sang lead for different songs. It was like multiple concerts mixed up into one performance.

There's 8 performances left, I highly recommend that you check it out. Click (here) for tickets. PS. It's also a plus that there are some pretty cute girls on stage. =)
