The mystical world of Middle Earth comes to life during The Lord of the Rings in Concert: The Fellowship of the Ring, in which more than 200 musicians playing Howard Shore’s Oscar-winning score accompany the hit Peter Jackson film. As the movie is pristinely projected across a 60-foot screen, celebrated maestro Ludwig Wicki rallies the happy hobbits of the Munich Symphony Orchestra, Pacific Chorale, and Phoenix Boys Club in a quest to soundtrack the film with living voices and rousing orchestration. The sweeping emotion of Tolkien’s tall tale is captured in mingling musical worlds, as the orchestra lacquers the fantasy epic with lilting lullabies, operatic suspense, and banjo getaway music. All fans attending the show receive access to a special exhibition of real props from the Lord of the Rings trilogy, which includes hobbit feet, Frodo’s Elven-helmed blade, and a special appearance by Andy Serkis as “room temperature.”
