The legendary film, the much loved and most watched, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, live and in Concert at the Radio City Music Hall on Tuesday, February, 7th, 2023. This showing celebrates the 21st anniversary of the motion picture’s release in 2001. This is part one of the Trilogy of The Lord of the Rings, and is projected on a huge screen with all the unforgettable and characteristic music, performed by symphony orchestra, with support from Soloists and choruses, timed to perfection to synchronize with the film.
On a giant screen accompanied by 238 musicians, including symphony orchestra, chorus and soloist, at the historic Radio City Music Hall, will be shown the epic and legendary motion picture, The Lord of the Rings; The Fellowship of the Ring. This performance creates a wholly new and dramatic live concert experience, set to the score of the film, but allows the music to bear the narrative weight. There are few more complex and comprehensive works than the music of The Lord of the Rings.
Middle-earth is the setting, assumed to be Earth at some time in the distant past. Sauron, the Dark Lord created four rings with The One Ring to rule, in his campaign to conquer all of Middle-earth. However, The Ring was lost The other three Rings of Power were, in turn, given to Men, Dwarves, and the Elves. In a land, known as the Shire, very reminiscent of the English countryside, we follow the adventures of Frodo, a hobbit, with his hobbit companions, Sam, Merry and Pippin. The story wanders across Middle-earth, in his quest to destroy the One Ring.
