Description by OLDIES.com:
"A Night At The Opera," released in 1975, was not only the band's first platinum album, but it was the one that catapulted them into the spotlight as one of the biggest rock acts in the world. Now for the first time, fans are offered an in-depth look at one of rock music's seminal records with the The Making Of A Night At The Opera. Highlights include interviews with guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor and the late lead singer Freddie Mercury.
Though they began their career practicing an artier, more theatrical variant on the Led Zeppelin hard-rock sound, Queen's 1975 album A NIGHT AT THE OPERA is where they begin to show their own unique brand of eclecticism and compositional facility--not least on the quintessential classic-rock radio staple "Bohemian Rhapsody." This program offers a critical review of the landmark album through archival footage, live performance clips, and interviews with critics, musicologists, and surviving band members.
