"Having watched all three films more times than I can count over the years, it was great to experience The Two Towers in a new, unforgettable way. I've always been a huge fan of Howard Shore's score for the trilogy, so to hear it played live was absolutely magical. One could almost call the memory… precious."
The Two Towers is the second entry in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy, featuring Elijah Wood as Frodo, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, and Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn. The story picks up from The Fellowship of the Ring's fragments, throwing our wandering heroes into three separate paths as they encounter war-torn lands, unlikely allies, and ruinous betrayals in their persistent quest to end Sauron's encroaching darkness. The Two Towers—alongside the rest of the series—was met with universal acclaim, which includes two Academy Awards, four Saturn Awards, and a revered Hugo Award for Best Long Form Dramatic Presentation.
As audiences immerse themselves into the widescreen adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's world, a trio of symphony orchestra, chorus, and soloists will enact Howard Shore's Grammy Award-winning music in full live resonance! The film's score is often lauded for its complex yet picturesque depiction of the tale's themes— "a painstaking musical description of the Middle-earth mythology," as reviewed by the BBC.
