This December, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra will be at its full force when it performs Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in Concert, with new performance dates announced due to popular demand.
Following on from its success with the Star Wars in Concert Series starting with The Force Awakens last December and A New Hope in February, the MSO perform John Williams' legendary score live to the classic 1980 film on the big screen at the Plenary, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Conductor Nicholas Buc said that The Empire Strikes Back is his personal favourite Star Wars score.
"As well as being a fan favourite in the series, The Empire Strikes Back introduces perhaps the greatest villain's theme in cinematic history, The Imperial March. Williams' bombastic music for Darth Vader has since come to represent everything evil in the Star Wars universe and, combined with his new love theme for Han and Leia, this score improves on everything that he started in Episode IV," said Mr Buc.
Enjoy the most memorable moments from this iconic film including Han Solo being frozen in carbon, Luke Skywalker discovering who his true father is and his training methods as a Jedi under the watchful eye of his master, Yoda, all while the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra plays the incredible music in full symphonic surround sound.
