“One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them. One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.” These words from J. R. R. Tolkien’s famous three-part epic The Lord of the Rings has sparked the imagination of millions of fans for decades. Now The Fellowship of the Ring, the first part of the trilogy, is to be transformed into an unforgettable concert experience. The 21st Century Orchestra & Choir will be joined by a the Boys Choir Lucerne to perform the stirring Oscar- and Grammy Award-winning music together live, synchronised with the film on screen. You can experience this unique screening of the original film with German subtitles, with music performed for the first time by a live symphony orchestra, on 12 December 2019 at the Hallenstadion in Zurich.
In The Fellowship of the Ring Frodo Baggins, a hobbit from Middle Earth, a realm of magic and myths, is entrusted with a ring and gets caught up on the frontlines of a war of colossal proportions. This is a tale full of risk and adventure, but, most importantly, is also about how the power of friendship and courage can hold even the destructive forces of darkness at bay.
