Rocktopia

Developed over eight years, Rocktopia is inspired by the idea that if Beethoven or Mozart were alive today, they would be modern-day rock stars.

Our Rocktopia Review

I am always wary of a rock concert set in a theater. The usual decibel level and mega lighting effects won't fit the house. Rocktopia has some great moments, but it suffers from indecision - rock show or night at the theater? Ersatz opera meets ersatz rock, resulting in a self-conscious show that works too hard and often gets in its own way.
