The Wachowski Brothers’ classic takes a cinematic red pill with a high-definition screening accompanied by a live orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall

Following the sold-out performances of The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Matrix will be the latest film to be presented with a live orchestra this October as the NDR Pops Orchestra creates a unique cinematic experience at the Royal Albert Hall.

The Matrix depicts a future in which reality as perceived by most humans is actually a simulated reality created by sentient machines. Computer programmer Neo (Keanu Reeves) is drawn into a rebellion against the machines, involving other people who have been freed from the "dream world".

If the classic and widely loved original sci-fi story The Matrix can be likened to the film’s iconic ‘blue pill’; then Matrix Live definitely offers the audience a cinematic ‘red pill’. The high-definition screening is accompanied by a mind-blowing interpretation of Don Davis’s original award-winning score inside the majesty of the Royal Albert Hall, presenting the viewer with a new reality of how the film should be experienced.


Tickets from £15-£55. To book, please visit www.royalalberthall.com or call the Box Office on 0845 401 5045

Royal Albert Hall

The Royal Albert Hall is the world’s most famous stage. Its breathtaking auditorium hosts over 370 shows a year by the world’s greatest artists. The magical atmosphere combined with inspired artists creates legendary events.  Opened in 1871 as part of Prince Albert’s vision for a centre for the Arts and Sciences, and a registered charity operating without public funding, it remains true to his founding ambitions within a modern context.

Extending the brand with over 120 events outside the auditorium, the Hall has broadened its appeal to younger, diverse audiences whilst still engaging its existing customers. It also works extensively with schools and young people through its Learning and Participation programme, reaching over 30,000 participants each year.
