The Force is strong with the MSO this December

Newly released tickets for Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in Concert are now available, priced from just $35 pp.

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in Concert is set to be an unmissable screen and sound extravaganza this December!

This is your opportunity to see the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO), under the baton of conductor Nicholas Buc, perform John Williams' legendary score for Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back live.

Regarded as one of the most critically-acclaimed films of all time, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back sees the Empire regrouped after the destruction of the Death Star – with Darth Vader leading the hunt for Luke Skywalker.

Audiences will enjoy the most memorable moments from the iconic film, including Darth Vader's instantly recognisable theme, The Imperial March in full symphonic surround sound.

Complementing the immersive concert experience is an enlightening live pre-concert talk with three film experts, Dr Dan Golding, Andrew Pogson and Conductor, Nicholas Buc, from The Art of the Score podcast. Together they will discuss the intricacies of John Williams' legendary score and how it changed the trajectory of film music forever.

Guests can also enjoy foyer activations and fun photo opportunities!
