The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. We are adding a second show!
Due to huge audience demand in the Saturday performance of THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS in Concert, we are adding a second date on Friday 22 March at 7.30 pm. The pilgrimage of the “Fellowship of the ring” continues, once again in a unique film performance accompanied by live music from oscar-winning composer Howard Shore. Hobbits, elves, orcs and dwarves will come to life on a giant movie screen, accompanied by a 230 member symphony orchestra, choirs and international soloists.
JV Classics presents the 2nd part of the epic fantasy trilogy The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. The spectacular screening, accompanied by 230 members of a symphony orchestra, choirs and foreign soloists, will take place twice, on Friday 22 March and Saturday 23 March 2024 in the modern concert hall O2 universum Prague.
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, based on the book by J. R. R. Tolkien, premiered in the Czech Republic on 16 January 2003 and was attended by three quarters of a million people. Although more than 20 years have passed since its release, this ground-breaking work has lost a bit of its huge popularity. On the contrary, more and more new generations continue to admire its excellence. The music for the trilogy was composed by the celebrated composer Howard Shore: “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,” says the author.
The music of The Lord of the Rings is considered one of the most complex works in the field of film music. Styles and instruments from around the world illustrate and characterise the individual elements of Tolkien’s saga. The most probably it will forever remain the most famous of Howard Shore’s work, for which he received two Academy Awards (for The Fellowship of the Ring and The Return of the King). A third Oscar was awarded to the final song Into the West, sung by Annie Lennox.
“My first score for the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring, was the beginning of my journey into Tolkien’s world, and I will always hold a special fondness for the music and the experience,” recalls Shore. His storytelling through music and melody are on full display here, creating a perfect second plan to the story.
Director Peter Jackson and his production team of over 2,400 people filmed in New Zealand locations with the help of 26,000 extras, shooting all three episodes simultaneously. The film stars Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Viggo Mortensen, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Christopher Lee, Bernard Hill, Andy Serkis, Karl Urban, Hugo Weaving, and other Hollywood stars.
