TTT Score Performed Live in Oz

From By popular demand – the second film from Peter Jackson’s trilogy, with its stunning orchestral score performed live on stage. In 2011 we presented The Fellowship of the Ring, the first film in Peter Jackson’s epic trilogy The Lord of the Rings. With the movie on the big screen and the orchestra performing Howard Shore’s music, the result made for some awesome hours in the concert hall. Then we were deluged! Faster than hordes of orcs storming Helm’s Deep, the emails flooded in. And the phone calls, the tweets and the Facebook posts. Everyone wanted to know when we’d be presenting the rest of the trilogy. So we’re delighted to announce Part II of The Lord of the Rings with two evening concerts and one matinee performance.
