Featuring new music arrangements for Fifth House Ensemble’s acoustic dectet, drum set, and electronics by music director Eric Roth, Undertale LIVE is more than just a concert; it’s a meeting place where fans join the quest by voting on each show’s unique storyline.
One of the most acclaimed video games of the past decade, solo developer Toby Fox's indie hit Undertale has enchanted a fanbase of nearly 4 million players worldwide through its heartwarming story, quirky characters, and Fox's own trailblazing musical score. Undertale introduces players to a secret world of monsters who were sealed underground long ago with an ingenious twist in perspective: players can resolve each encounter nonviolently, inviting us to empathize with those most different from ourselves.
AWR Music Productions has also produced the internationally acclaimed Distant Worlds: Music from FINAL FANTASY and A New World: intimate music from FINAL FANTASY. Fifth House Ensemble's previous video game collaboration, Journey LIVE, was lauded by VICE as "combining the best parts of video games and musical theater.”
