THE HOBBITS ARE COMING!
Peter Jackson's film success celebrates its 20th anniversary as a live concert with a large orchestra.
In a grand concert experience with symphonic orchestra, choir and star guests, the fabled world of Hobbits, Elves and Orcs is brought to life. From the menacing sounds of Mordor and the shrill attack of the Black Riders to the beautiful lyrical melodies of the Elves, the magnificent orchestra, soloists and our star guests transform reality into a musical setting of Middle Earth. The voice of Saruman, Sir Christopher Lee, leads all film music lovers into the fantastic musical world of "Lord of the Rings".
For the moderation we could win William "Bifur" Kircher. He impersonated the dwarf Bifur in the three adaptations of The Hobbit: "An Unexpected Journey", "The Desolation of Smaug" and "The Battle of the Five Armies".
The Hobbit tells the story of Bilbo Baggins, who undertakes an unexpected journey with a group of dwarves to reclaim their gold from a dragon. One of these dwarves was the warrior and toymaker "Bifur". He is famous for surviving in three movies as the dwarf with the remains of an orc axe in his forehead. In the Tolkien language "Khuzdul" he is truly "Khuzd Belkul", which means "Mighty Dwarf"!
Join us, hobbits, and sing together with Bifur popular songs from the Lord of the Rings universe!
Also joining us will be "The KingsPipers" who will transport us straight to the Shire with their bagpipes and "kiltrock", not forgetting our soloists: Julie Lund, Eve Niker and Amy Kinnear and conductor Alexander Steinitz.
Composer Howard Shore created much of the music for the film trilogies "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" and was awarded an Oscar, Grammys and the Golden Globe for it. As in Richard Wagner's "Ring of the Nibelung", his leitmotifs make the audience feel in the flesh when the ring unfolds its power and corrupts the bearer of all power: A parable that could well fit today.
Whether bombastic with timpani and trumpets or elvishly filigree, the well-known melodies performed by a fantastic orchestra and great soloists immediately provide the appropriate images in the head. Have fun in Middle Earth!
