Event:
Celebrate the 45th Anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope

Feel the force when the MSO presents Star Wars: A New Hope in Concert in January 2023. Composer and film buff Nicholas Buc leads the orchestra in this milestone screening of the original classic with John Williams' Oscar-winning score played live to film.

Nineteen years after the formation of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance when he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet of Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke's Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire. Although (spoiler alert!) Obi-Wan sacrifices himself in a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader, his former apprentice, Luke proves that the Force is with him by destroying the Empire's dreaded Death Star.

The MSO performs the beloved soundtrack while you watch the entire movie with dialogue on the big screen!
