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…”
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.
