Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in Concert

The Empire Strikes Back Luke and Darth Vader
Lucasfilm/Disney

The 1980 jewel in the Star Wars crown will be screened with the immortal score played live

The Empire Strikes Back (1980) – aka Episode 5 – is widely considered the best of the eight Star Wars films. The first Star Wars sequel, it's the movie that set the series on course for immortality, introducing characters such as Yoda and Boba Fett, offering the cliffhanging twist about Luke's parentage, and bringing together Leia and Han in a surprisingly affecting love story.

But let's not forget the score by John Williams, which introduced to Star Wars the thunderous 'Imperial March'. Now fans have the chance to hear that music played live by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Nicholas Luc.

Prior to the two film screenings Luc will join film experts Dr Dan Golding and Andrew Pogson to give a presentation on the composition and greatness of the score. 

Be quick to book your tickets: the chances of this happening again soon are on a par with the chances of successfully navigating an asteroid field.

Tickets are on sale now.
