Sunday 12th December – 7:30pm
J. R. R. Tolkien’s masterpiece in a one-off concert with orchestra, choir and the Tolkien Ensemble on the Oscar winning music of Howard Shore, Annie Lennox, Enya and Ed Sheeran.
‘Pipkin’ Billy Boyd sings his songs “Edge Of Night” from “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Last Goodbye” from “The Hobbit” as well as for the first time the unreleased song “Before The Dawn” for Peter Jackson!
Praise for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit The Concert:
‘In the end, neither the audience nor the musicians held their seats. The audience managed to get the actors on stage with three encores with standing ovations.’ Westfalen-Blatt
‘Successful event, ecstatic audience!’ Neue Presse
‘You will witness an elaborate production. … The choir and the orchestra play the soundtrack with great force and passion, while the vocal soloists provide lyrical moments. … The ensemble is rewarded with standing ovations.’ Osnabrücker Zeitung
‘A highly emotional and mythical experience not only for die-hard “Lord of the Rings” fans was the live concert of the probably most famous saga in the world…. The tension and romanticism of the powerful sound creation with echoes of Wagner’s operas or Orff’s Carmina Burana was perceptible at all times and always provided goose bumps – and plenty of applause for the artists.’ Allgemeine Zeitung
