From the electrifying performances on The Ed Sullivan Show to the psychedelic pop experimentations of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band -- all of the excitement and unforgettable music of a live Beatles show is brought to life in Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles. With authentic costumes, multimedia effects and note-perfect live renditions of classic Beatles songs such as "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Want to Hold Your Hand," "Hey Jude" and "Let It Be," Rain is the biggest sensation since John, Paul, George and Ringo themselves first set foot on American soil. These spectacular musicians have won international acclaim for their uncanny reproduction of the Fab Four. Founded in Southern California in the mid-1970s, Rain has toured across the globe with a repertoire of more than 200 Beatles songs, including the most complex and challenging tunes that the Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for a live audience.

The sound at Verizon does not match that at the Segerstrom Hall, which detracted a bit from the production, and the very short first half and overlong intermission detracted, but the Ninth was stupendous, a wonderful rendering of the best musical piece ever. The sound system revealed some interesting instrumentation I had missed on the CD, like bassoon and clarinet soloes. Good show!

Led by guest conductor Robert Moody, this monumental fusion of soloists, chorus and music — all set to Schiller’s Ode to Joy — features four world-class opera singers who take on the florid and challenging solo passages in the fourth movement of Beethoven’s Ninth.
