The Lord of the Rings and the Symphony Orchestra

Unusual film screenings will be held this autumn in Paris. The big screen will show the movie trilogy “The Lord of the Rings.” And all the music from these films, beloved by millions of viewers around the world, will be played live by a symphony orchestra.

Somebody can regret that many years ago we did not see “The Lord of the Rings” by Stanley Kubrick and listened to the music by The Beatles – such an idea had been seriously considering by the eminent director and the musicians. However, those films that Peter Jackson made after some decades by Tolkien’s novels became the cult movies. Composer Howard Shore has created a brilliant soundtrack which was transformed later into a symphony for chorus, soloists and orchestra.

We can easy imagine what a strong impression we’ll get from the battle scenes of this trilogy accompanying with the unique music.

The original Paris adaptation of “The Lord of the Rings” is an excellent opportunity to enjoy your favorite movie and great music and to learn some French at the same time. All the dialogues from the film trilogy – “The Fellowship of the Ring,” “The Two Towers” and “The Return of the King” will be shown on the screen with subtitles.

The demonstrations will be held at Palais des Congres de Paris Porte Maillot on 23-27 October 2012; beginnings – 20.00.

Tickets are already on sale. The cheapest will cost 50 euros, the most expensive – 129.
