Symphonic Queen
January 31, 2013   
Article's tools:

Symphonic Queen, a music project by the Alla Vienna orchestra with the Vivid Singers choir, starts a new concert season March 3 at the Opera na Zamku (Castle Opera) in Szczecin, northwestern Poland. Last year, the show was seen by 8,000 people at 10 concerts across Poland.

The organizers describe the show as “a unique cross-genre project, unifying the symphonic element of Queen’s music with the rock potential of a salon orchestra and a majestic choir.”

After an audience of over 1,000 was wowed by the premiere performance in November at the Wytwórnia club in £ód¼, the musicians decided to carry on with the adventure and bring the genius of Queen to audiences in other parts of Poland.

The first, classical part of the concert features a variety of songs and styles, drawn from the first Queen albums released in the 1970s to the “Let Me Live” song from 1995. These are all versions rearranged especially for the new tour.

The second part, in turn, is a straight rock show, Queen style, packed with the British band’s greatest hits.

Towards the end of the show the audiences will hear “Bohemian Rhapsody” played live, which extremely rare, as even Queen on tour played the operatic passage from tape. Then actor Mariusz Ostrowski from the Stefan Jaracz Theater in £ód¼ will take the stage as Freddie Mercury to sing “We Will Rock You” and “We Are The Champions.”
