Nerd Alert: Lord of The Rings In Concert at Orleans

Ever wanted to watch a symphony orchestra perform the score to Lord of the Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring as the complete movie is projected on a 60 foot screen in HD?

Still skeptical?

What if I told you that it will take 200 musicians to perform the task - twice the size of a normal orchestra - featuring the Munich Symphony Orchestra, Pacific Chorale and the Phoenix Boys Choir?

Still skeptical?

What if I told you that this was was the first of a three year project, in which each of Peter Jackson's never ending films would be performed with a live symphony orchestra on stage?

STILL skeptical?

What if I told you that they will be encouraging all attendees to come dressed as their favorite character for the audience interactive Rocky Horror style portion of the show?

STILL SKEPTICAL?

Good because that last bit isn't true. The rest is... and the show takes place on Friday October 14th at 8pm at the Orleans Arena. Ticket prices range from $35 - $125 and go on sale Friday June 10 at Noon.

I just hope they have pee breaks.

orleans? because its cheap?

Cool. They did that out here over the last 3 years with the NSO at Wolf Trap. I hear it was awesome.

I would totally do this if I were in town. Even more so if they did the same thing using Battlestar Galactica music/clips (the new one, not the old one).
