"Black symphony" is WT’s masterpiece - that ups the ante for any further DVD production regarding sound, technics and image quality. The spectacular show on this one was recorded in February 2008 in the sold out Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam. Aboard: illustrous guests like Keith Caputo (Life Of Agony) and Anneke van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering), high precision pyrotechnics, a giant light show and Europe’s biggest video screen (400 sqare metres). To top it off, the Metropole Orchestra (consisting of 60 musicians) and a classical choir of 20 voices accompanies the band around songstress Sharon den Adel. "Jillian" starts the wonderful evening, followed by bombastic "Forgiven". "Stand my ground" is supported by an impressive pyro show - the audience knows the song by heart and shows it by singing along each and every note. With the first sounds of "What have you done", the whole arena is shaking when mythical creatures with wings circle the vocalist. A truly unique magical evening.
Within Temptation play a superlative show. With a 60-headed orchestraand a 20-headed choir and the newest technical possibilities, the Dutch give an innovative gothic show.
