Quote from: zenrat on January 20, 2022, 03:03:34 AMI've never been to a ballet but am keen to as i'm fascinated to find out whether I can hear the dancers feet banging about on the stage. Covid permitting the Melbourne Ballet are IIRC doing Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet this season.
Quote from: Weaver on January 19, 2022, 11:14:30 PMThe Classical Music/Heavy Metal genre is another surprising one. There's a whole sub-genre called Symphonic Metal that features a combination of rock-band instruments, operatic-style vocals and orchestral backing tracks. Finnish band Nightwish are pretty much the inventors of this genre, and they record all their backing tracks with classical musicians and choirs in London. Their founder and Composer, Tuomas Holopainen, cites movie music, and Hans Zimmer in particular, as a strong influence. Touring with a full orchestra is generally impractical/uneconomic but the Dutch symphonic metal band Epica did a one-off show with a full orchestra on stage.
