About the performance

The Force will be with the MSO this December as we present Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in Concert under the baton of conductor, Nicholas Buc. John Williams’ legendary score paired with one of the most critically-acclaimed films of all time will make this screen and sound extravaganza one not to forget!

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 the film, including Darth Vader’s instantly recognisable theme, The Imperial March in full symphonic surround sound.
