The Music of Star Wars with Royal Northern Sinfonia

Posted on 2 November 2017

In a few weeks time, in a concert hall not so far away, Star Wars fans will be gearing up for a night to remember with Royal Northern Sinfonia’s latest film music special at Sage Gateshead.

Taking place just weeks before Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits cinema screens across the UK, Star Wars Spectacular is the perfect pre-Christmas night out for fans of the epic film franchise, with performances on Thursday 23 November and Friday 24 November, both at 7.30pm in Sage One.

Featuring music from John Williams’ iconic score performed live by Royal Northern Sinfonia, the programme includes soundtrack snippets from prequel The Phantom Menace and sequel The Force Awakens alongside timeless hits Star Wars (Main Title), Imperial March and Cantina Band from the original trilogy.

Star Wars costumes are encouraged, so get your lightsabers and Chewbacca masks at the ready – and don’t forget to pay a visit to Sage Gateshead’s pop-up cocktail bar and cafe-turned-cantina.

Tickets are available from £16.50 to £39.50. The force is strong with this one – so make sure you secure your seats soon to avoid disappointment. Book tickets online or call Ticket Office on 0191 443 4661.
