The Thrilling Star Wars Film Saga Continues
The Empire Strikes back at Davies Symphony Hall! Accompanying an HD screening of the film, the ensemble will perform John Williams' timeless Grammy and Oscar-nominated score live, from the opening strains of the wistful and immediately recognizable Star Wars Main Theme to the ominous, earth-shaking Imperial March and beyond.
What is the story?
Set three years after the Rebels destroyed the Death Star, The Empire Strikes Back finds the Empire in hot pursuit of the Rebels, who've thus far remained hidden on a secret base on the ice planet Hoth. When Darth Vader and his evil forces decimate the base, Luke flees to the Dagobah system to train with Jedi Master Yoda whilst Leia, Han Solo, Chewie and C3PO try to outrun the Empire, to no avail. Luring Luke with the plight of his kidnapped friends, Vader prepares to impart a terrible secret that may turn the tide of good and evil within Luke.
