Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back showing with NZSO – Auckland – 5 May 2019

What

Film with live Orchestra
Presented by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in Concert comes to New Zealand in 2019! This classic film will be accompanied by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and NZSO Associate Conductor Hamish McKeich, bringing John Williams’ Oscar®-winning score to life. Don’t miss this exciting combination of a cinematic classic performed with live orchestra.

“You must feel the Force around you…”

The battle for the galaxy intensifies in this thrilling fifth episode of the unfolding saga. As Imperial Forces launch an all-out attack on the Rebel Alliance, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) flee to Cloud City where they are captured by Darth Vader. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) journeys to the mysterious, marshy planet of Dagobah, where the wise Jedi Master Yoda teaches the young hero the ways of the Force.

Little does Luke know that all his Jedi training will be called upon so soon. A stunning revelation– and a seeming life-or-death duel with Darth Vader– await.

After the phenomenal success of Star Wars: A New Hope, director Irvin Kershner took over from George Lucas and delivered what many believe is the best of the Star Wars films. John Williams again composed the score, creating a soundtrack that built on the music from Star Wars: A New Hope and expanded it to fit the universe around it.
