We are excited to announce that Howard Shore will now give a free talk on his Academy® and Grammy® award-winning score before the show. The talk will take place from 6.15pm to 6.45pm inside the main auditorium.

Howard Shore brought J.R.R. Tolkien’s literary imagination to vivid life with his beautiful score. Shore crafted a fully-developed musical epic that related the classic tale with moving and intricately related themes for each of Middle-earth’s cultures and charted the One Ring’s journey with an exhilarating flourish.
