Have you ever wanted to watch the original Star Wars on a 40-foot screen while a live orchestra performs the soundtrack? That answer should be, yes.
It’s safe to say that the Columbus Symphony has been crushing it lately. With such creative upcoming productions like Drake Vs. Tchaikovsky (going to have to give it to Tchaikovsky you guys, he goes hard on them bars), the orchestra goes out of its way to show their willingness to make bold and hip performance choices. But their newest presentation ups the ante to some next level nerdery.
October 6, at 8 p.m., the Columbus Symphony Orchestra will perform the entire score to Star Wars: A New Hope as the movie plays on a 40-foot screen. Travel a galaxy far, far away with Luke, Leia, and Han and live orchestra accompaniment highlighting one of the greatest adventure stories ever written.
