More Star Wars Movie Screenings with NZSO Live

NZSO Star Wars Screening
The screening of Original Trilogy movies with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra performing the full score as a live accompaniment, will return in 2019. Back in March of this year, at Wellington’s TSB Arena, the NZSO performed the music of Star Wars: A New Hope for a live screening of the original film. Next year, the Episode 4 performances will be repeated in Auckland (Spark Arena) on May 4th, and Christchurch (Horncastle Arena ) on August 3rd, while two screenings of The Empire Strikes Back with full orchestra support are scheduled for the TSB Arena on April 28.

Full details are up on the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra website, and tickets will be accessible via that site from Friday 7th December.

The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra will take you to a galaxy far, far away with screenings of the films Star Wars: A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back with live orchestra.

Since its release 41 years ago, the Star Wars saga has had a seismic impact on both cinema and culture, inspiring audiences around the world with its mythic storytelling, captivating characters, ground-breaking special effects and iconic musical scores composed by John Williams. Don’t miss this rare chance to see your NZSO bring the original Star Wars films A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back to the big screen with the epic soundtrack performed live.
