Thanks to the Royal Albert Hall in London, English Trekkies can treat themselves to a comprehensive cinematic experience, enjoying live renditions of the scores to JJ Abrams’ Star Trek and its followup, Star Trek into Darkness, while the films play on the big screen.
The live concert series, NME reports, offers split performances of composer Michael Giacchino’s scores between May 29 and May 30, 2014. Played live by the 21st Century Symphonic Orchestra and Chorus, the concert will present the score to 2009’s Star Trek on the first night and the soundtrack to its sequel, Star Trek into Darkness, the next day.
“To hear Michael Giacchino’s music, the secret weapon of the Star Trek series, performed live in Royal Albert Hall, will be, I promise, a thrill,” Abrams said in a press release. “The full orchestra scoring sessions for the films have been among my favourite life experiences. To give the public a chance to hear this incredible music performed live is a wonderful thing. I cannot wait to go and celebrate Michael’s truly remarkable achievements!”
Tickets for both Star Trek – Live In Concert and Star Trek Into Darkness – Live In Concert are on sale now, with prices ranging from £15 to £55. More information can be found on the Royal Albert Hall website.
