Featuring symphonic arrangements from some of Square Enix’s most cherished role-playing franchises, including Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger/Chrono Cross, the critically acclaimed and officially licensed Symphonic Fantasies London is a tour de force of orchestral composition and performance. Conducted by Eckehard Stier, with arrangements by Merregnon Studios’ Jonne Valtonen and Roger Wanamo, Symphonic Fantasies London is the ultimate concert experience for fans of Japanese RPGs.

Accompanying the London Symphony Orchestra on stage will be the London Symphony Chorus, along with talented soloists Slava Sidorenko and Rony Barrak. This will be the LSO’s seventh live video game concert performance, following sell-out Final Symphony II concerts earlier this year in both London and Japan, as well as recording the chart-topping Final Symphony album at Abbey Road Studios.
