Forget Green Day--the Who were the original masters of the rock opera, and now their classic Mod masterpiece Quadrophenia is heading to the stages of England in just a few weeks.

The Who's second rock opera (after the infamous Tommy), Quadrophenia is a story about the terse feuding between Mods and Rockers in 1960s England. The 1973 album was adapted into a film in 1979 and attracted a cult following (and not just because of a very young Sting as the Ace Face). The album was listed as one of Rolling Stone's 500 greatest albums of all time.
