Two years after it charmed the world with its nostalgic look at the golden days of the Hollywood silent film, The Artist - Live in Concert now comes to the Royal Albert Hall for an exclusive UK premiere.

This multi-award winning film is dramatically brought to life on stage with the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Ernst Van Tiel, playing the soundtrack simultaneously with a high-definition screening of the film.

Written and directed by Michael Hazanavicius, scored by Ludovic Bource and starring Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo, the film takes place in Hollywood between 1927 and 1932 and focuses on the relationship of an older silent film star and a rising young actress, as silent cinema falls out of fashion and is replaced by the "talkies".

The Artist received universal acclaim from critics and audiences alike when it was released. It was nominated for ten Academy Awards and won five including Best Director, Best Actor and Best Picture, becoming the first French film to ever win Best Picture. It was also nominated for six Golden Globes Awards, winning three, and twelve BAFTAs, winning seven, which makes it the most decorated film in French history.

These events will mark the first time that the Royal Albert Hall has opened its doors for end-of-year concerts this century.
