Symphonic Theater Of Dreams is a tribute to Dream Theater. A band highly acclaimed in the progressive metal scene for more than two decades, Dream Theater has a huge following all across the globe. Michal Mierzejewski, a dedicated Dream Theater fan, had the idea in summer 2010 that he wanted to arrange Dream Theater songs in a 'classical' environment that had never been done before.
Of course, most fans know that Dream Theater performed a one-off live show at the famous Radio City Music Hall in New York back in 2006 with a full orchestra, but this is something else...
Also in 2010, Michal posted a short teaser on YouTube and posted it on all the Dream Theater
related forums (with short snippets of "The Count of Tuscany" and "The Best of Times"). This immediately caught the eye of Mike Portnoy (former drummer of the band) and he was very pleasantly surprised by this project.
‘’This looks like it’s gonna be an EPIC symphonic tribute to DT’’.
Michal was very honored by this. All the fans around the world were very excited by this short clip and the reactions were beyond Michal's expectations. There was no turning back now. Michal had to go through with this project. So in the months to come he contacted other people who wanted to be part of this special project.
