Feel the force this November at the Royal Albert Hall, as Star Wars: A New Hope is presented live in concert for the first time in the UK. George Lucas’ 1977 classic will be projected in high-definition on the big screen, accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra – taking John Williams’ epic score to a breath-taking new dimension.
Set nineteen years after the formation of the Empire, A New Hope sees Luke Skywalker thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance, where he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet of Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke’s Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire.
These concerts will form the centrepiece of the Royal Albert Hall’s dedicated Star Wars Festival, a celebration featuring a galaxy of events including Q&As, concerts, exhibitions and other special events to be announced in due course.
