Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in Concert
Mar 23, 2019 - Mar 24, 2019
These performances feature a screening of the complete film Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, with Oscar-winning composer John Williams' musical score performed live to the films by the Colorado Symphony. The concerts will be led by the Colorado Symphony's Music Director, Brett Mitchell.
The battle for the galaxy intensifies in this thrilling fifth episode of the unfolding saga. As Imperial Forces launch an all-out attack on the Rebel Alliance, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) flee to Cloud City where they are captured by Darth Vader. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) journeys to the mysterious, marshy planet of Dagobah, where the wise Jedi Master Yoda teaches the young hero the ways of the Force.
Little does Luke know that all his Jedi training will be called upon so soon. A stunning revelation — and a seeming life-or-death duel with Darth Vader — await.
