We’ve had the pleasure of listening to a live orchestra play the music to A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back at the Royal Albert Hall and out around the UK on tour and now Disney Concert and the RAH announce that next autumn, Return of the Jedi will join them.
Return of the Jedi (1983) sees Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia and co. joined by Jabba the Hutt, Yoda and the Ewoks in an adventure across the galaxy as Darth Vader prepares to unleash the final blow to the Rebel Alliance.
Presented live in concert for the first time in the UK, the climactic sixth episode of the Star Wars saga will be projected in high definition on the big screen, with Oscar-winning composer John Williams’ musical score performed live by the incredible London Symphony Orchestra, led by Ludwig Wicki.
Since the release of the first movie nearly 40 years ago, the Star Wars saga has had a seismic impact on both cinema and culture, inspiring audiences around the world with its mythic storytelling, captivating characters, groundbreaking special effects and iconic music scores.
Priority Booking for Royal Albert Hall Friends and Patrons is open now until 9.00am on Friday 4th October, when tickets go on general sale at 10.00am.
Jedi hits the US in February, followed soon after by The Force Awakens, so stay tuned as we’re sure to have even more opportunities to view these great films in amazing halls with a live orchestra.
