Conductors got their name by both guiding orchestras and wielding copper batons that deflect lightning away from the brass section. Behold an electrifying performance with this GrouponLive deal: for $11, you get one ticket to see the Dresden Philharmonic at State Theatre in New Brunswick on Friday, March 9, at 8 p.m. (up to a $61 value). Best-available seating will be assigned on the orchestra and balcony levels. There is no elevator at State Theatre and stairs may be necessary to access seats.

Founded in 1870, the Dresden Philharmonic stands as one of the world's most venerable orchestras: its baton has passed through the hands of legends such as Brahms, Tchaikovsky, and Strauss. At State Theatre, the ensemble sweeps and thunders through a trio of long-beloved works. Carl Maria von Weber's Overture to Der Freischütz prefaces the opera's tale of supernatural woodland intrigue with melodies that draw from traditional German folk tunes and complicate their national spirit with slightly foreboding atmospherics. Dvořák's Cello Concerto provides the platform for the talents of French cellist Gautier Capuçon, whose "calmly charismatic" playing style recently captivated the Boston Globe's Jeremy Eichler. The program ends with one of the biggest bangs in the classical canon—Beethoven's Symphony no. 5, with its iconic "fate motif," speculated to represent the insistent knocking of a door-to-door concert-subscription salesman.

Originally built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, State Theatre has morphed into a pole star for live performances of all stripes. Above its sea of red velour, luminous orbs circle around an enormous chandelier, which a lucky audience member may win by correctly guessing its weight.

State Theatre New Jersey

The State Theatre New Jersey was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre New Jersey to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
