The Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit - The Concert
THE HOBBITS ARE COMING!
Peter Jackson's film success celebrates its 20th anniversary as a live concert with a large orchestra.
In a grand concert experience with symphonic orchestra, choir and star guests, the fabled world of Hobbits, Elves and Orcs is brought to life. From the menacing sounds of Mordor and the shrill attack of the Black Riders to the beautiful lyrical melodies of the Elves, the magnificent orchestra, soloists and our star guests transform reality into a musical setting of Middle Earth. The voice of Saruman, Sir Christopher Lee, takes all film music lovers to the fantastic musical world of "Lord of the Rings".
Along for the ride will be a star guest from the films, who will lead through the program.
Composer Howard Shore created much of the music for the film trilogies "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" and was awarded an Oscar, Grammys and the Golden Globe for it. As in Richard Wagner's "Ring of the Nibelung", his leitmotifs make the audience feel in the flesh when the ring unfolds its power and corrupts the bearer of all power: A parable that could well fit today's times.
Whether bombastic with timpani and trumpets or elvishly filigree, the well-known melodies performed by a fantastic orchestra and great soloists immediately provide the appropriate images in the head. Have fun in Middle Earth!
