I have never heard the Superman score played by an orchestra and this event is on my bucket-list. When I think of Superman (and that’s a lot!) I always have music playing in my head. It’s the “Superman March” and I know that when I feel the orchestra play any piece of music from this iconic movie my heart is going to be beating out of my chest.
I am not sure how many times I have watched this classic movie but I have never seen it while a full orchestra plays along with it! This will be an experience that will live on in my memory for many years to come. Every time I re-watch this movie I will think of the time when I felt John Williams’ score fill the wonderful Royal Albert Hall.
“Celebrate Hollywood’s greatest cinematic superhero in 2021 as part of the Royal Albert Hall’s Films in Concert series.
Directed by Richard Donner, and showcasing a young Christopher Reeve, Superman (1978) features a star-studded cast including Margot Kidder as intrepid reporter Lois Lane, Gene Hackman as the villainous Lex Luthor, and the inimitable Marlon Brando as Jor-El.
Superman in Concert will see the film played in high-definition on the big screen, whilst John Williams’ triumphant original score will be conducted by Anthony Gabriele and performed by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra live to picture.”
