Five decades of Star Trek will be celebrated at the Royal Albert Hall in a stunning new show featuring the most iconic footage from the legendary films and TV series – as the unforgettable music is played live on stage by a concert orchestra.
The world premiere of Star Trek: The Ultimate Voyage takes place at the famous London venue on 1 November 2015, before beginning a tour of American concert halls next year.
Lucy Noble, Director of Events at the Royal Albert Hall, said:
“We are boldly going where no other venue has been before: staging a massive Star Trek extravaganza that draws on 50 years of legendary TV and film to create an unmissable evening for fans.”
The lavish production will include a live symphony orchestra accompanying footage beamed in high-definition to a 40ft screen, including Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek: Insurrection, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager and many more.
Star Trek: The Ultimate Voyage is presented in conjunction with CineConcerts, CBS Consumer Products and Paramount Pictures. Justin Freer, producer and founder of CineConcerts, said: “The Star Trek franchise has for many years been an important and meaningful part of our culture in so many ways. This exciting concert experience featuring the greatest music and visuals spanning five decades will be an extraordinary and memorable event.”
Notes to editors:
Last year, the Hall’s massively popular film-and-live-score screenings of Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek into Darkness (2011) were described by Den of Geek as “heaven for soundtrack fans… sending chills through the audience” and by Total Film as “a truly special experience”. Its other film-and-live-score events have included Lord of the Rings and Gladiator, while forthcoming shows include Ratatouille and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.
