About this performance

The Force will be with the MSO when it performs The Empire Strikes Back in Concert, featuring the classic 1980 movie on the big screen with John Williams’ legendary score performed live.

After the destruction of the Death Star, the Empire has regrouped – with Darth Vader leading the hunt for Luke Skywalker. Enjoy the most memorable moments from this iconic film including Han Solo being frozen in carbonite, Luke Skywalker discovering who his true father is and his training methods as a Jedi under the watchful eye of his master, Yoda, all while the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra plays the incredible music in full symphonic surround sound.
