Rocktopia is the exciting, genre-bending combination of classical, opera, and rock and roll that is coming to a town near you! For a taste of this one-of-a-kind concert experience, check out some of the videos above. Our talented group of world-class musicians, including Tony Bruno, singer and Rocktopia co-creator Rob Evan, and Chloe Lowery, join many other incredible vocalists and instrumentalists on stage with co-creator and renowned conductor Randall Craig Fleischer to create an experience that you’ll never be able to forget! Some shows feature special guest appearances from some of the world’s most beloved artists like acclaimed violinist Mairead Nesbitt formerly of Celtic Woman.
Featuring a full orchestra and choir along with the rock musicians, Rocktopia brings classical works from composers like Rachmaninoff and Beethoven together with the best classic rock and roll hits from bands like The Who, Styx, Heart, Pink Floyd, and Journey. What results is a show that manages to capture the emotional intensity of the different styles of music in a way that illuminates the shared humanity that is expressed through the best music of any age.
