With the Book of Mormon play sold out, I was looking for a good show at the Denver Center for Performing Arts. Being big sucker for super hero movies and growing up watching Batman, Superman and company, I did not hesitate to purchase a ticket for "The Hero's Journey: A Symphonic Tribute to Comic Con".
It was beyond what I expected and the show immediately gave me chills. It's amazing to see those talented musicians in complete synchrony. Scott O'Neil, the resident conductor was fantastic and gave the audience plenty of laughs. Austin Wintory also showed up briefly to present excerpts of the video game Journey. And I was pleasantly surprised to see DeVotchKa frontman Nick Urata make a short appearance and dazzle the audience with his skillful manipulation of the Theremin.
Very well organized event except for the shortage of pamphlets. The ushers are very courteous and the audience appreciative (except for the few drunk group of people in the two rows in front of me).
With all that said, the musicians are the heart of this orchestra and it shows that they put in long hours of hard work and dedication. Bravo!
