You really can’t beat live music, especially when it’s your favourite character theme tune played by an orchestra. I attended an event previously featuring the music of John Williams and Hans Zimmer not so long about and I was gobsmacked. That only featured two Superman theme songs, well live music has come to an all time high for us Superman fans with this incredible event coming up.
Here is your chance to see Superman: The Movie on the big screen accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. The aim of the event is to bring a classic and iconic film to life with a live rendition of the original score by John Williams.
Here’s the official write up from The Royal Albert Hall
Celebrate Hollywood’s greatest cinematic superhero in 2020 as part of the Royal Albert Hall’s Films in Concert series.
Directed by Richard Donner, and showcasing a young Christopher Reeve, Superman (1978) features a star-studded cast including Margot Kidder as intrepid reporter Lois Lane, Gene Hackman as the villainous Lex Luthor, and the inimitable Marlon Brando as Jor-El.
Donner’s beloved film adaptation relays the inspiring origins of Superman, from his narrow escape as an infant from the doomed planet Krypton, to his formative years on a farm in Smallville, Kansas, and finally to his arrival in Metropolis, where he leads dual lives as mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent and as the mythical ‘Man of Steel’.
Superman in Concert will see the film played in high-definition on the big screen, whilst John Williams’ triumphant original score is performed by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra live to picture.Taken from The Royal Albert Hall website.
Personally I think this is an incredible opportunity and experience. I’ve never had the pleasure to see this film on the big screen, and to hear that score played LIVE is just going to be incredible. Mark my words.
Tickets start at £34.00, which is an absolute bargain for such a unique and once in a lifetime experience. There is only ONE date for this event, and thats Tuesday 27th October 2020 at 7.30pm in London. Tickets are available NOW, from The Royal Albert Hall website. I’ll be buying my tickets very soon! Don’t miss out!
