LOTR: The Two Towers Live at Radio City Music Hall - Tickets On Sale Now! Can't Post



Tickets are now on sale for the highly anticipated The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, which will be presented live to film at Radio City Music Hall for two performances only, on Friday, October 8th and Saturday, October 9th, 2010. Following the success of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring’s concert last October, the Academy Award®-nominated film The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers gets the same treatment at the world-famous Radio City Music Hall. Beneath an immense 60-foot screen, Howard Shore’s Grammy®-winning complete original score will be performed live to Peter Jackson’s award-winning epic. Click here for high resolution images.

The music of Middle-earth will be brought to life by more than 300 musicians: Switzerland’s 21st Century Symphony Orchestra, The Grammy Award®-winning Brooklyn Youth Chorus, and renowned soprano Kaitlyn Lusk, all under the direction of celebrated Maestro Ludwig Wicki.

Last fall, over 10,000 people filled Radio City for The Fellowship of the Ring shows. The New York Times said “the music of Middle-earth soared at Radio City Music Hall,” while Entertainment Weekly said “it was a terrific night at the theater.”

For tickets, please visit www.ticketmaster.com or call 1-866-858-0008. Tickets range from $59.00 – $150.00.

All along, nefarious wizard Saruman (Christopher Lee) awaits the Fellowship members at the Orthanc Tower in Isengard. Highly acclaimed by critics and fans alike, the film earned over $925 million worldwide, making it one of the highest grossing films of the year in the U.S. and worldwide. The film remains one of the top-10 highest-grossing worldwide films of all time. It won two Academy Awards®, a Grammy® Award and three BAFTAs, and was nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars®, Golden Globes®, and BAFTA Awards.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Howard Shore (Composer) is among today’s most respected, honored, and active composers and music conductors. His work with Peter Jackson on The Lord of the Rings trilogy stands as his most towering achievement to date, earning him three Academy Awards®. He has also been awarded four Grammys® and three Golden Globes. Shore was one of the original creators of Saturday Night Live where he served as the music director from 1975 to 1980. At the same time, he began collaborating with David Cronenberg, and has scored 12 of the director’s films, including The Fly, Dead Ringers, Crash, Naked Lunch and Eastern Promises for which he was honored with a Genie Award. Shore continues to distinguish himself with a wide range of projects, from Martin Scorsese’s The Departed, The Aviator, and Gangs of New York, to Ed Wood, The Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia, and Mrs. Doubtfire. Shore’s music has been performed in concerts throughout the world. In 2003, Shore conducted the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in the world premiere of The Lord of the Rings Symphony in Wellington, New Zealand. Since then, the work has had over 140 performances by the world’s most prestigious orchestras. In 2008, Howard Shore’s opera of The Fly premiered at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris and at The Los Angeles Opera. Other recent works include Fanfare for the Wanamaker Organ in Philadelphia and a piano concerto in 2010 for Lang Lang.

He inaugurated a Renaissance ensemble, Il Dolcimelo, and created the concert series Treffpunkt Haydn. In 1999, he founded the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra, which has collaborated with internationally-renowned composers including Howard Shore, Randy Newman and Martin Böttcher. In 2007, the city of Lucerne presented Maestro Wicki with a Special Achievement Award for his contribution to the city’s cultural life.

The group has garnered wide acclaim for projects such as James Bond in Concert, Italian Film Music: An Hommage to Ennio Morricone and Maurice Jarre and An Evening with Randy Newman. In 2007, the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra entered into a partnership with Academy Award®-winner Howard Shore and has performed his complete score for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. live to the epic motion picture. The project continues with the world premiere of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of The King in 2010.

The Grammy® Award-winning Brooklyn Youth Chorus, now in its 17th season, is one of the country’s leading children’s choruses. Led by founder and artistic director Dianne Berkun, BYC choristers study and perform a range of music in classical and non-classical genres. The Chorus has toured Austria, Russia, the United Kingdom, Canada and Germany; performed at venues including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Madison Square Garden and the White House; sung with major artists such as Elton John, Barbara Cook, Lou Reed, John Legend, Natasha Bedingfield, Fantasia Barrino, Ray Davies, Judy Collins, Andrea Bocelli, and Mark Morris Dance Group.
Kaitlyn Lusk made her major orchestral singing debut with the Baltimore Symphony in 2003 at the age of 14 and has since been sought after for solo appearances with many of the nation’s leading orchestras. Since the fall of 2004, Kaitlyn has been the featured vocal soloist in Howard Shore’s The Lord of the Rings Symphony. She has performed this role with over 25 orchestras in the United States and Canada from the Philadelphia Orchestra to the San Francisco Symphony, and from the Houston Symphony to the Minnesota Orchestra. She has performed with conductors including Keith Lockhart, Alexander Mickelthwate, Allaistar Willis, Stuart Malina, Nicolas Palmer, Markus Huber. In January 2007, Kaitlyn made her European debut with Maestro John Mauceri and the Gewandhaus Orchestra in Leipzig. In the summer of 2007, as part of an encore performance of The Lord of the Rings Symphony with the Cleveland Orchestra, she once again performed with Howard Shore, who in 2005 invited Kaitlyn to perform the Academy Award®-winning song as part of the Grammy® Honors of Howard Shore in New York City. In addition to her live performances, Kaitlyn’s first studio album, No Looking Back, features some of the top musicians and songwriters in the industry today and was produced by the award-winning composer and arranger, Kim Scharnberg.

Great [In reply to] Can't Post

Hope you come, so I can meet you for real.

Come Saturday night, I think most have tickets for Saturday. And last year there was a moot on Friday night, so try to keep that day free as well.

I don't think RCMH has any bad seats, so just see what you want to spend. I'm Orchestra JJ 413.

And what to wear. Whatever you like. I saw costumes, nice clothing and jeans with shirts last year. So not a real dress code.

I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR SO LONG!!! PLEASE LET THERE BE TICKETS LEFT FOR ME!!!!

You know you're cool when...
-You have a nerd-spasm just because you walk by your Lord of the Rings Extended Edition DVDs.
-You cry at the end of return of the king even though you've seen it about 13 times.
-You check TOR.n for updates when you should be doing your geography project.
-You would rather have Richard Taylor's autograph than Merryl Streep's.
-You doodle Treebeard in the margins of your math homework.
But if that's what I'm like... well than too bad for normal people!

The Two Towers is so last year. Wink

For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much -- the wheel, New York, wars, and so on -- while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man, for precisely the same reasons. -- Douglas Adams

Though I doubt 10,000 concert-goers would attend, an orderly crowd is preferable.

Not everyone attending the concerts will be in town on Thursday. And not everyone attending the concerts will want the book.

But as to size, I wouldn't know. For what it's worth, here's the B&N page on that location.

You work for Orcs too! Well...I work for just one really nasty, smelly Orc who will not allow me off that weekend Evil. I hope everyone has a great time as it should be another exciting concert. I have made a point to put in for the next year being hopeful there will be a performance of ROTK (crossing fingers it will be that weekend). But your right, you never know about Orcs, but at least they let me play with radiation, so I can't really complain that much as everyday is glowing in my little Mordor of a hole Tongue.

they don't mail it internationally. So I bought mine at will call. Which means I can pick it up at the theater the day before the show.

re: the tux [In reply to] Can't Post

I am one who thinks we all need an excuse, every now and then, to dress up a little. I wore a long, ankle length dress that seems a bit Elvish to me and my husband wore a suit. We were definitely in the minority and most people (except for the few who thought like us and the ones in costume) were in casual, no big deal, every day clothes.

It's a shame... but it is what it is. I'd love to see you in a tux! :-) The ultimate dress up for a man for me is dress kilt with Prince Charlie jacket. my heart be still.

Just wait a bit before booking somewhere. Last year there was a great offer on the Park Central Hotel. Really great located between Central Park and Times Square. Altaira said that news about the hotel would come soon. Maybe you could wait a bit to see what the offer will be this year.

I get in late on Friday [In reply to] Can't Post

which sucks, but it was a super cheap flight, and I only have to take half of Friday off from work, which is really all I could afford to do. So, I'll be missing the book signing, but I'm sure I'll pick up a copy on Saturday.

Also, the Fellowship Musical will be performing in NY that same weekend, press release coming. I may not make it into town early enough on Friday night to see the show, but once they give me the press release, I'll post the note here so others going can plug them in. These guys were a hit on the West Coast and played at one of our ORC coventions, so it's really great that they are finally making it to NY, they've been working long and hard to get it back there.

Now I need to go buy myself a ticket, I'm thinking I may go for Orchestra this year.

Peace, Love and Rock & Roll,

Looks like members of New Your Musical Theater group can buy tickets to shows now, but the general public can start buying tickets starting on Sept 1st. I'll have to remember to keep an eye on that site to snag one. I've seen the show 4 times here in SoCal...but would just love to see it again in NY.
