Star Wars: A New Hope is the movie that started the legend, the first film in the original Star Wars Trilogy and the beginning of the Star Wars franchise.
More than 70 orchestral musicians will play the soundtrack live at the prestigious Esplanade Theatre in Singapore. Created by five-time Academy Award-winning composer John Williams, the epic music takes on a new dimension when played live accompanying the full movie projected onto the big screen, complete with all dialogue and sound effects.
In Star Wars: A New Hope, nineteen years after the formation of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance when he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet of Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke’s Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire.
Although Obi-Wan sacrifices himself in a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader, his former apprentice, Luke proves that the Force is with him by destroying the Empire’s dreaded Death Star.
Oscar-winning composer John Williams’ ubiquitous Star Wars “Main Title” theme has become part of popular culture since it was first heard accompanying Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977. It is no surprise that Williams’ orchestral compositions for Star Wars are among the most beloved and recognizable themes in cinematic history, from the classic “Main Title” theme to the ominous “Imperial March” from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back to the stirring “Duel of the Fates” from the prequel trilogy.
