Are you one of those people who think the new Star Wars films just don’t hold a candle to the old ones?
Well, you can revisit the classic that started it all as the Star Wars: Film Concert series comes to Manila in May with Star Wars: A New Hope in Concert. Concert organizers CC: Concepts announced that tickets went on sale today.
For those who somehow don’t know after more than 40 years of near-ubiquity, the beloved saga features a bunch of rebels jumping from one planet to another in an attempt to save the galaxy from an evil empire, and its first installment, A New Hope, will be screened in remastered high definition at the Theatre at Solaire in Pasay City.
The film’s score (quick trivia: it was preserved by the United States Library of Congress for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”), by famed film composer John Williams, will be performed live by the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by Gerard Salonga (yes, that’s Lea Salonga‘s brother).
