THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING in Concert will take place at the O2 universe
The journey of the “Fellowship of the Ring” is over, the decisive battle for Middle-earth begins! Enjoy the dramatic conclusion of the entire trilogy in a unique film performance accompanied by live music by Oscar-winning composer Howard Shore performed by a 230-piece symphony orchestra, choirs and foreign soloists.
The concert with a spectacular film projection will take place twice, on November 8 and 9, 2024, in the modern concert hall O2 universum Prague.
The film The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, based on the book by J. R. R. Tolkien, premiered in the Czech Republic on 15 January 2004. Its attendance reached three quarters of a million viewers. Although more than 20 years have passed since its release, this groundbreaking work has not lost anything in the audience’s popularity. On the contrary, new and new generations admire its perfection. The wonderful music for the entire trilogy was composed by Howard Shore, who received two Oscars for it (for The Fellowship of the Ring and The Return of the King). The final song of the entire saga, Into the West, sung by the famous Annie Lennox, was awarded the third Oscar.
“The large scale of the music requires a symphony orchestra, a mixed choir, a boys’ choir and instrumental and vocal soloists singing in Tolkien’s literary languages, but of course also in English,” explains the author. His compositional art is fully manifested here and creates the second plan of the story perfectly. Styles and instruments from different corners of the world complete and characterize the individual elements of Tolkien’s saga.
The film Return of the King received eleven Oscars and thus entered the hall of fame of films with the highest number of golden statuettes. The completion of the epic trilogy established director Peter Jackson forever on the throne of the creators of fantasy films, and his name is etched in the memory of millions of people around the world. Tolkien himself referred to his Middle-earth books as a work that he believed could not be translated to the screen. The production team led by Peter Jackson, with all the love and respect for this work, proved the opposite, and thanks to them we now have the opportunity to watch the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy in HD quality. “The Lord of the Rings has been my passion since childhood, the opportunity to translate this world onto the screen was also the fulfillment of my dream,” said Jackson in one of the interviews after the premiere of The Return of the King.
