Star Wars: In Concert At The IZOD Center

Posted By Justin on October 14, 2009



Star Wars: In Concert Comes to the IZOD Center November 20

Tickets On Sale Now

Massive multi-media event features stunning visuals, a live orchestra, choir and narration, plus an exclusive exhibit of Star Wars costumes, props and production artwork

October 14, 2009 - Star Wars: In Concert is a unique multi-media event featuring music from all six of John Williams’ epic Star Wars scores. As part of its worldwide tour, it will play the IZOD Center on Friday, November 20 at 7:30 PM.

Tickets are $39.50, $59.50, $85. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at the IZOD Center Box Office (Mon-Sat 11 AM-6 PM), www.ticketmaster.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000 or any Ticketmaster outlet. Additional fees may apply. Groups of 20 or more contact IZOD Center Group Sales at 201-460-4370 for special discounts. Visit www.IZODCenter.com for more information.

Narrated live by Anthony Daniels (the actor who portrayed C-3PO in all six films), the production features The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, accompanied by specially edited footage from the films displayed on a three-story-tall, high-definition LED super-screen - one of the largest ever put on tour. The live music and film elements are synchronized in order to create a full multi-media, one-of-kind Star Wars experience.

The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra has been in constant demand for live performances and recordings of classical, light classical and popular music since its formation in 1987, working with internationally-renowned artists in a variety of settings from the traditional - concert halls, stadiums and cathedrals - to the unorthodox. The orchestra has performed concerts with José Carreras, Diana Krall, Liza Minnelli, Randy Newman, Andrea Bocelli, and Russell Watson, appeared at Tina Turner’s Sixtieth Birthday Concert, performed Aida at Earls Court with the late Luciano Pavarotti and made tours of the UK with Bugs Bunny on Broadway, The Music of ELO and Symphonic Queen. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performed the world premiere performances of STAR WARSTM: In Concert at the O2 Arena in London in April 2009.

“We’ve taken the key themes from the music and cut together all the images that fit with each theme, so you can really get a sense of how the music played into the images,” said George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars Saga. “The whole soundtrack is a testament to John Williams’ creativity and his extraordinary ability to enhance the emotional aspects of the films.”

“Creating the music for the Star Wars films has been an exciting and wonderful experience for me, and I therefore have derived particular pleasure in assembling a compendium of themes from all of the films to be presented in Star Wars in Concert,” said Williams. “The editors at Lucasfilm have created original film montages to accompany each of the musical selections, and in the process, I believe that a singular and unique Star Wars experience has been born.”

“This event has been crafted to present Star Wars from many points of view; for the first time, the full dramatic sweep of Williams’ iconic scores can be heard performed live in one evening,” said Another Planet Touring Producer Spencer Churchill.”The show is a new way of experiencing the epic scope of the saga.”

Accompanying the concert is an exclusive exhibit of Star Wars costumes, props, artifacts, production artwork and specially created behind-the-scenes videos from the Lucasfilm Archives. Many of these pieces are leaving Skywalker Ranch for the first time. The exhibit features many classic fan favorite artifacts, as well as several new and never-before-seen items, including:

· Full costumes for Jedi Masters Kit Fisto and Plo Koon will be on display.

· For the first time ever, pages from John Williams' original hand-written sheet music for Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace will be exhibited for the public.

· Also on display will be various never-before-seen props from the films, including blasters and helmets from Coruscant, Tatooine and other iconic Star Wars locations.

For more information, go to www.StarWarsInConcert.com.

Star Wars: In Concert is produced by Another Planet Touring in association with Lucasfilm Ltd. Performances will be conducted by Dirk Brossé and the production is directed and designed by Steve Cohen. Star Wars in Concert had its world premiere at the 02 Arena in London on April 10 and 11, 2009.

THE MEADOWLANDS SPORTS & ENTERTAINMENT COMPLEX consists of three facilities (IZOD Center, Giants Stadium, Meadowlands Racetrack) and is the ultimate destination for over 5.5 million visitors each year. It is located just minutes from New York City. Owned and operated by the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority, the Complex is home to four professional sports franchises - NJ Nets (NBA), NY Giants (NFL), NY Jets (NFL) and NY/NJ Red Bulls (MLS).
