Tarja Turunen will play a special classical show — “Classic and Divine” — with band, orchestra and choir at the Opera-Rock Show, during the Miskolc International Opera Festival.

The festival started in 2001, takes place every summer in Miskolc, northern Hungary, and is dedicated to the Hungarian composer Béla Bartók, while also including other composers' works. In 2007 and 2008 the festival also included Opera-Rock sets by Therion and Epica.

Tarja's concert will take place at 21:00 on June 12th, 2010, at the Miskolc Ice Hall. A special setlist of nearly two hours will be compiled for this show, including a selection of Tarja's most loved songs from My Winter Storm, classical gems, unpredictable rock covers, songs from her career with Finnish band Nightwish, and songs from her new album What Lies Beneath. She will be accompanied by her own band, symphonic orchestra and choir.

Tickets are available online at Ticket Express and in the Eventim network, and cost 30€.
