Available in 2-CD, 2-DVD and Blu-Ray formats, Act I was recorded and filmed with 10 HD cameras at the breathtaking Teatro El Círculo in Rosario, Argentina earlier this Spring resulting in a visual production Terrorizer.com called “mind boggling.” Act I boasts an elaborate track listing of solo tunes, Nightwish classics and various covers including a rendition of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom Of The Opera,” Gary Moore’s “Over The Hills and Far Away,” Whitesnake’s “Still Of The Night” and a variety of video extras.

“A finely honed release from the undisputed queen of symphonic metal. 4.5/5” – OneMetal
“TARJA’s voice is simply stunning and this album shows that she can perform live just as perfectly as she can record in the studio – which is how it should be but some singers do struggle with live shows, particularly of this length, yet there’s none of that here – TARJA sounds flawless throughout.” – Planet Mosh
“…an excellent live metal release…” – Sea Of Tranquility
“’A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’ said Lao Tzu. And this is especially true for Act I. It is also a Step I, the first live album TARJA has produced since her days in Nightwish and a statement that her solo career will continue at all costs. — Reflections of Darkness
