Boston musicians/filmmakers Sal Clemente and Alan Ware originally produced and presented A Night at the Rock Opera in 2004 to a sold-out audience at the Regent Theatre. The performance was filmed for a documentary on the making of "Jesus Christ Superstar--A 21st Century Tribute To The Brown Album," a re-imagining of the classic Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice rock opera.
"Will We Rock You?" details the trials and tribulations of Ware, Clemente
and their intrepid band of singers, musicians and friends as they produce
their interpretation of Jesus Christ Superstar. Facing Andrew Lloyd
Webber's reluctance to allow their versions of the songs from Superstar to
be heard in the film, Ware and Clemente write their own "mini-rock-opera" in which they lampoon themselves and Webber. This original music was recorded and filmed during performances at the Regent Theatre providing the visual climax to the documentary film.
An all-star cast of Boston area musicians including James Richard, Peter
Montgomery, Rod Eymael, Chantal Ambroise, Naoko, and Tony Savarino, invite you to spend the night together with them at A Night at the Rock Opera. With spectacular lighting and sensational sound, the show is guaranteed to rock fans of all ages.
