Have you ever experienced a cinematic moment so pure, you felt like you were a part of the film?
The Academy Award-winning Fellowship of the Ring, directed by Peter Jackson, will be brought to life this Saturday night at Anaheim’s Honda Center by conductor Ludwig Wicki and the Munich Symphony Orchestra. Featuring the Pacific Chorale and the Phoenix Boys Choir, “Lord of the Rings in Concert” promises a cinematic experience unlike any other with over 200 musicians on stage.
The original soundtrack has been carefully removed in the editing studio, leaving only the character dialogue and sound effects set to the picture. Howard Shore’s score, for which he was awarded Best Original Musical Score at the 2002 Grammy awards, will then be brought to life before the eyes (and ears) of a live audience.
The concert was first performed in 2009 at New York’s legendary Radio City Music Hall to rave reviews. The success of this initial concert prompted an idea for a three-year touring celebration in which each of the films will be performed live in concert on the 10th anniversary of its release in theaters. Released December 18, 2001, The Fellowship of the Ring is being brought to the Honda Center on October 15th as part of a nine-city West Coast tour.
