Star Trek with Live Orchestra
- The film: J.J. Abrams’ 2009 reboot of the beloved sci-fi series, featuring star turns from Chris Pine as James T. Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock
- The plot: The brash and cocky Kirk (not yet Captain material) joins Starfleet to help thwart the war-mongering Romulans and meets the logical Vulcan Mr. Spock (spoiler: they don’t hit it off at first). After that, there’s a lot of time-traveling.
- The score: a pulse-pounding sonic ride from Academy Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino (The Incredibles, Up, Ratatouille) that transports ears to alternate realities at warp speed
- The orchestra: the 66-piece powerhouse of the The Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony
- The conductor: Erik Ochsner, who’s also steered live-film performances of Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean, and can perform a Vulcan mind-meld on the entire audience
- Show-stopping moments: The introduction of the U.S.S. Enterprise, the epic final battle with the Romulans, and an appearance by the dearly departed Leonard Nimoy as an alternate-universe Spock. Then when the credits roll, the orchestra plays Alexander Courage’s original Star Trek theme.
Sony Centre For The Performing Arts
The largest soft-seat theatre in Canada, the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts is perhaps most famous for its overhanging marquee outside. The diagonal canopy and its snake-like rows of lights were restored to their original form in 2010, along with the facility’s wood, brass, and marble accents. Inside the lobby, York Wilson’s mural, The Seven Lively Arts, fills eyes with fractured, panoramic representations of various artistic media, from slanted musical staffs to menacing Greek theatre masks.
