Ultrasonic Rock Opera

Ultrasonic Rock Opera, or URO, could be good (Boston Herarld):
Giving the rock masses what they can’t get elsewhere, the 23-piece URO lineup - including 16 vocalists - has managed to work out a stunning arrangement of the Queen classic [Bohemian Rhapsody] as well as a number of other brilliantly complex tunes, including The Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” and the whole second side of the Beatles’ “Abbey Road.” Dubbed “A Night at the Rock Opera,” the show begins a run of 10 weekend performances tonight at the Wilbur Theatre.

“We don’t do anything that the band at the corner bar can do,” said URO singer/guitarist/producer Sal Clemente. “We do songs people can’t hear live anywhere else. But it’s still just a giant rock band. If it’s not rock ’n’ roll I don’t want to do it.”
Hell yeah, man!
