Film music live

The soundtracks of your favourite films emerge from the background and become the star of the show as they are brought to life by some of the finest orchestras around in our Classical Season 2019/20.

Do battle with orcs, get lost in the desert and conjure magical creatures with unforgettable scores from cinematic classics, including Lord of the Rings, Lawrence of Arabia and Harry Potter, performed live in concert.

Danny Elfman's enchanting ‘Ice Dance’ from Edward Scissorhands is performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra, and the music of James Bond is for your eyes only in a thrilling concert.
