Rocktopia, a musical revolution that celebrates the fusion of the most epic rock songs of the last century and the greatest classical compositions ever written. 

Five world-class vocalists - backed by a full symphony orchestra, an electrifying rock band and a powerhouse choir - take the very concept of music itself to electrifying new heights.

The anthems of Queen and Journey meet the odes of Beethoven. The power of Zeppelin merges with the poetry of Puccini. The greatness of The Who blends with the grandeur of Strauss.
Experience the one-of-a-kind sound of Rocktopia.

See it. Hear it. Believe it.

Quotation Mark

Billing itself as "a classical revolution," Rocktopia is, as star and cocreator Rob Evan has written about this Broadway-style concert now playing at the Broadway Theatre, an attempt to "break down...any preconceived notion of what either genre is about — and electrify and inspire lovers of either musical styles." There's nothing inherently wrong with that aim: Leonard Bernstein made such barrier-breaking his mission throughout his career as a conductor and composer, and the show's other major creative force, Maestro Randall Craig Fleischer, who studied under Bernstein, could be said to merely be taking his mentor's inclusive dictum to a logical extreme in Rocktopia by bringing classical music to a concert-arena setting.

Alyson Cambridge, who sings the Handel as well as Puccini’s “Quando m’en vo” (popularly known as “Musetta’s Waltz”), the latter as an intro to the Beatles“Something” (I guess they are both about seductive women, or something?), is the only classical vocalist among the principal performers. A graduate of the Metropolitan Opera’s prestigious Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, she has some notable opera credits, including performances at the Met. Her vibrant soprano is lovely to hear — and, swathed in a rather complicated sexy-glam gown (the “fashion designer” is Mimi Prober), she also looks gorgeous.

What Rocktopia does offer, outside of true Broadway-caliber production values, is an array of talent from the different spheres of music that it fuses: the 20 skilled musicians of The New York Contemporary Symphony Orchestra; the mellifluous 30-member chorus of the New York Contemporary Choir; an accomplished five-piece pop-rock band (violinist Máiréad Nesbitt, a founding member of Celtic Woman; guitarist Tony Bruno, who also serves as the show’s Music Director; drummer Alex Alexander; bassist Mat Fieldes; and long-time Broadway pianist Henry Aronson)
