Star Wars: A New Hope Is Screening With A Live Orchestra!

Cue theme music and large scrolling text… Queensland Symphony Orchestra is back, this time bringing you Star Wars: A New Hope in concert.

Epic, this will be!

The Star Wars saga has been held closely to our hearts since its release over 40 years ago. Now, on Saturday July 7 at the Brisbane Convention Centre, we meet again.

Acclaimed conductor Benjamin Northey will lead the concert, providing the infamous score live as  the entire film rolls out on an impressive 12 metre screen (get ready to completely geek out to the iconic music by legendary composer John Williams). Really, if you didn’t get your light saber (or empty wrapping paper roll) out for a battle to this soundtrack in your childhood, you probably weren’t living.

Relive the claustrophobia of that trash compactor scene and learn the true meaning of the force when the legend that is Obi-Wan and Darth Vader dramatically butt heads. The hope and possibility of that binary sunset over the Tatooine desert, combined with symphonic sounds is really going to pull at your heart strings. Also, C-3PO and R2-D2’s love-hate relationship is way better than reality TV (#couplegoals).

And no, you don’t have to travel to a galaxy far away for this live symphonic experience. Just get your tickets and be there.
