Trans-Siberian Orchestra: Beethoven's Last Night

"Beethoven turns up regularly in pop music, like Chuck Berry’s 'Roll Over Beethoven' and the rap group Soulja Boyz’s 'Beethoven,' with various heavy metal incarnations in between, including the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s 'Beethoven’s Last Night,' an inventive rock opera that involves a deathbed deal in which Beethoven gets the best of Mephistopheles but has to sacrifice his 10th Symphony in the bargain" (Allan Kozinn, "Don't Scowl, Beethoven, You're Loved," New York Times, 12/18/11).
