Star Wars & Melbourne Symphony Orchestra join forces

Melbourne Symphony Orchestra presents the exclusive Oz premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in concert

Listen up, Star Wars fans! The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra are bringing The Force Awakens to life with a live concert. 

Teaming up for an exclusive Australian premiere, the Star Wars concert series will see the iconic movie soundtrack fill Melbourne’s recently-refurbished Palais Theatre.

Melbourne Symphony Orchestra will lead the unique event, featuring a full screening of the film with Oscar-winning composer John Williams’ classic score performed live to picture and led by conductor Nicholas Buc.

Sounds epic, right?

The special concert takes place at the St Kilda venue on 8, 9 and 10 December 2017, ahead of the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in cinemas 14 December 2017.

Legendary composer John Williams is well known for scoring the Star Wars films, beginning with 1977’s Star Wars (Episode IV: A New Hope), for which he earned an Academy Award for Best Original Score. His scores for Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens were each nominated for Oscars for Best Original Score.
