Calling all Star Wars fans! Star Wars: A New Hope will be screened in Hong Kong with the accompaniment of a live orchestra. The Sound of the Faeries concerts will be held on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 and Thursday March 1, 2018 for two days at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, 10 Salisbury Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. The production features a full symphony orchestra and choir, accompanied by specially edited footage from the film displayed on a large screen. The live music and film elements are synchronized in order to create a full multi-media, one-of-kind Star Wars experience.
“We’ve taken the key themes from the music and cut together all the images that fit with each theme, so you can really get a sense of how the music played into the images,” said George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars Saga. “The whole soundtrack is a testament to John Williams’ creativity and his extraordinary ability to enhance the emotional aspects of the films.”
“More than 70 orchestra musicians will play the soundtrack live at the prestigious Hong Kong Cultural Centre Concert Hall. Created by five-time Academy Award-winning composer John Williams, the epic music will take on a new dimension when played live with the full movie projected on the big screen, with all of its dialogue and sound effects.”
Fans of the 1977 classic can enjoy John Williams’ music live while watching the entire movie on a giant screen. Too bad we can’t bring in the popcorns.
