Experience a celebration of the forthcoming release of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Part One of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring, will be screened as the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne Symphony Chorus and National Boys Choir perform the Oscar®-winning score live at Arts Centre Melbourne’s Hamer Hall.
Peter Jackson’s epic vision of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy was supported by some of the greatest film music of all time. In each film, composer Howard Shore uses the combination of symphony orchestra and chorus, matching the visceral impact of the journey unfolding on the big screen.
See Hamer Hall turned into a cinema deluxe as the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne Symphony Chorus and National Boys Choir perform live to a screening of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring in Concert at Arts Centre Melbourne.
Event Duration: 3 hours 20 minutes, including a 20 minute interval
