Dream Theater will be issuing a new live Blu-ray / DVD set titled “Breaking The Fourth Wall (Live From The Boston Opera House)” through Roadrunner on September 30th. The set captures a March 25th, 2014 performance the band performed at the Boston Opera House that was produced by the bands own John Petrucci.

That performance saw the group joined by The Berklee College Of Music Orchestra And Choir. Multiple configurations of the release are being offered, including a Blu-ray release, a 2-DVD set and a webstore exclusive deluxe package Blu-ray/3-CD set with poster. You can get your hands on those here.

After the break you can find a live video of “The Looking Glass” from the set, while Petrucci said of the show itself:

“In many ways, this was a huge homecoming for the band given the history of Dream Theater’s origins and ties with Berklee. With John and I both being alumni and Mike having been a professor at the college for 10 years, we saw the opportunity to perform together with the students of Berklee as a tremendous thrill and honor. We are extremely grateful for everyone’s hard work in making this special event a reality and to all who participated.

All of the Berklee College instrumentalists and vocalists did an outstanding job that night and it was awesome to have one of its students, Eren Basbug orchestrate and conduct them live at the Opera House after having been a part of our latest studio release in the same capacity. Dream Theater has always had a great connection to the city of Boston and we knew that against the backdrop of the beautiful Opera House, this would end up being a historic stop on our ‘Along For The Ride‘ world tour and an evening most definitely worth capturing on video.

Beautifully filmed and directed by Pierre Lamoureux and brilliantly mixed and mastered by Richard Chycki, this is in my opinion, a major highlight in our nearly 30 year career as a band. We are eagerly anticipating its release this fall and really hope that everyone enjoys it!”

“The concept of ‘At War with Reality‘ is based on the literary genre called ‘Magic Realism’. The main style within this genre is the notion that ‘reality’ is ever-changing, and needs to be constantly re-discovered and re-conquered. We felt that Costin‘s artwork style would be the perfect visual contribution to this album, so he became the natural choice…”
