Orchestre FILMharmonique and Productions GFN presents

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi In Concert

The FILMharmonique Orchestra makes its final journey across the stars with a live-in-concert performance of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi! The stakes are high for the Rebel Alliance as they try to destroy the Death Star, while our hero Luke Skywalker faces a showdown with Darth Vader and the Emperor.

The Academy Award-winning composer John Williams’ iconic score will be performed live by 78 musicians of the FILMharmonique Orchestra under the direction of Erik Ochsner, while the critically-acclaimed 1983 film plays on the big screen!

Erik Ochsner, conductor

Erik Ochsner is considered by audiences and critics alike to be one of the leading film-with-live-orchestra conductors due to his energy, attention to detail and precise synchronization. Ochsner was invited to conduct the world premiere of Mary Poppins in Concert (1964) at the Sydney Opera House; was Principal Touring Conductor of La La Land Live in Concert, for which he conducted 50 performances of Justin Hurwitz’s Academy Award and Grammy Award winning score across the globe, and on 40 hours’ notice, he flew to Taiwan to conduct Beauty and the Beast in Concert to fill in for an ailing colleague! His versatility as a conductor has stretched across a broad range of repertoire: from conducting as few as five performers in contemporary and modern works, to leading 300 performers in Live to Projection film concerts.

Original film will be shown with French subtitles.
