Radio City Music Hall
The fellowship has broken, with the help of the sly Gollum, Frodo and Sam are nearing Mordor. Meanwhile, Aragorn, the Elf archer Legolas, and Gimli the Dwarf prepare to meet the hoard of Uruk-Hai as they pour forth from Isengard. Peter Jackson’s The Two Towers is back on the big screen, with 238 musicians playing and singing along to the impressive Academy Award Winner Howard Shore’s Score.
Live performances of Howard Shore's score for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers will be held in concert to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the film. Join 238 musicians—including a symphony orchestra, chorus, and soloists—under a 60-foot screen at the historic Radio City Music Hall on February 14, 15, 16, and 17, 2024, to experience the epic film and its legendary score.
“By rights, we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.” And, “That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for.”
Returning to Radio City Music Hall for four sold-out nights in February 2023 and continuing its global tour, The Lord of the Rings: In Concert will bring back the Fellowship for the second installment, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. For the first time since its sold-out 2015 performance, The Two Towers, In Concert, will be performing in New York City again in 2024. With its famous and ethereal music being chosen No. 1 in the Classic FM Movie Music Hall of Fame 2023, Howard Shore's live performances of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, In Concert, are unlike any other movie-going experience.
Conducting The Two Towers, In Concert this year, is Ludwig Wicki, who has a background in bringing film compositions to life and was the film's first conductor. Filmmaker Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings' trilogy—2001's The Fellowship of the Ring, 2002's The Two Towers, and 2003's The Return of the King—became an international sensation thanks to its adaptation of the acclaimed novel by J.R.R. Tolkien. The New Line Cinema-released trilogy has 17 Oscars between them and is one of the highest-grossing films of all time. Oscars were bestowed upon Howard Shore for his Original Score in The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) and The Return of the King (2003), as well as for his Original Song, Into the West, which was featured in The Return of the King.
