This concert was one of the rare occasions where a symphonic metal band performs live with a full choir and orchestra. Within Temptation was accompanied by Netherlands’ prestigious Metropole Orkest and PA’dam choir, in the Ahoy arena in Rotterdam. The concert was filmed and released as a live album.
The overture was composed by Jeff Buckley (who has since gone on to become the chief conductor of the Metropole Orkestr) specifically for this concert, to showcase the orchestra and choir. It’s quite an impressive live performance!
