About the Movie
"Act 1" is Tarja's first ever solo live video product in her rock/metal outfit - probably her most spectacular release ever. The main content was filmed on two show nights March 2012 in Rosario, Argentina, at the Teatro El Circulo, a beautiful and breathtaking theatre setting. With its elaborate tracklisting, "Act 1" provides the full-fledged bill of fare to any Tarja fan. The tracklisting consists of Tarja's greatest solo tracks, some Nightwish classics like 'Nemo', or the cover versions 'Over The Hills And Far Away' (Gary Moore) and 'Phantom Of The Opera' (Andrew Lloyd Webber). The film also includes the song 'Tired Of Being Alone', which Tarja wrote with Schiller - or to make it short: a unique blend of music selection. The set up of these concerts meant an incredible amount of extra work and effort in the live production - with an impressive result, but also an emotional rollercoaster-ride. Says Turunen: "Those two nights in Rosario were a huge emotional drive to me personally." The artist herself admits, she "was ready to burst into tears many times."
This is a must see, it is such a beautiful and exciting show.

Makes You Wish You Could Be There!
Oh, Tarja, you've done it again! This concert is beautifully executed. Tarja sounds absolutely fantastic and looks beautiful. This concert movie has more songs than the Act 1 album and is definitely worth buying, especially since the expert filmography brings the show to life in a way audio alone cannot. You can see the joy both Tarja and the audience derive from the music.
This concert includes popular Tarja favorites such as "Ciaran's Well," "I Walk Alone," and "Until My Last Breath," as well as a couple of covers (including "Over the Hills and Far Away") and some Nightwish songs ("Nemo" and, of course, "Phantom of the Opera"). This movie is almost as good as seeing the concert live...almost.
