A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.
The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra will present the exclusive Australian premiere of Star Wars: The Concert Series performing The Force Awakens live as the film plays overhead.
Buoyed by legendary composer John Williams’ classic score, the special event comes just in time for the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
“I am thrilled to be conducting this incredible event and for audiences to experience this film as never before – in full symphonic surround sound – at Australia’s first ever live performance of a Star Wars film concert event,” says conductor Nicholas Buc.
“Even though the first Star Wars film was released 40 years ago, the movies and music are just as popular today. The Star Wars saga has had such an impact on both cinema and culture, inspiring audiences around the world with its mythic storytelling, captivating characters, groundbreaking special effects, and, of course, iconic musical scores composed by Williams.”
It’s all going down on Friday December 8, Saturday December 9, and Sunday December 10 at The Palais Theatre. Tickets via Ticketmaster.
