Melbourne Symphony Orchestra presents Star Wars: A New Hope in Concert
Experience the Orchestra performing John Williams’ Oscar-winning score performed live to the iconic film, conducted by MSO’s Associate Conductor Benjamin Northey.
It’s been 40 years since Luke Skywalker began a journey that would change the galaxy, as he leaves his home planet, battles the evil Empire, and learns the ways of a Jedi.
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.
