Boldly Going: Star Trek in Concert at the Royal Albert Hall this June

This June, we’ll be beaming down to the Royal Albert Hall for an exciting, out of this world screening of J.J. Abram’s brilliant 2009 Star Trek movie, complete with a live score provided by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.

Star Trek – in Concert forms part of the Royal Albert Hall’s inaugural Festival of Science, which allows audiences to explore space through a series of concerts, talks, screenings and comedy events. The event form’s part of the Royal Albert Hall’s Star Trek – in Concert weekend, with the opportunity to watch Justin Lin‘s superb sequel Star Trek Beyond in Concert on Sunday 3 June at 2:30pm as well.

The official press release reads:

Prepare for warp speed once again… set your phasers to stun… and get ready to boldly go where no one has gone before… Star Trek – In Concert returns to the Royal Albert Hall, with Michael Giacchino’s score performed live by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra conducted by Ernst Van Tiel.

Released in 2009, J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek rebooted this legendary franchise, telling the story of how the crew of the USS Enterprise assembles, with Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg and Leonard Nimoy.

The soaring and action-packed orchestral score was written by Oscar®-winning composer Michael Giacchino. With a set of all new themes, but also reprising the beloved title melody from the TV series by Alexander Courage – the music does not just break new ground, but also captures and advances the musical universe of Star Trek.

Screenings take place on the 2nd and 3rd June, tickets to both screenings are now on sale and can be booked by clicking here!
