‹ Back to What's On Back to the Future: In Concert with the Orchestra of Opera North

30 Jul 2017

Part of Millennium Square Summer Series

Power up your DeLorean… recharge your flux capacitor…  and get ready to celebrate this unforgettable movie classic as you’ve never seen and heard it before!

Back to the Future, staring Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson and Crispin Glover, is the 1.21-gigawatt blockbuster that topped the 1985 box office chart, spawned two wildly successful sequels and stamped an enduring imprint on pop culture.

In this time-traveling coming-of-age story, Marty McFly (Fox) suddenly finds himself transported back to 1955… where he struggles to change the destiny of his parents (Thompson, Glover), rescue an eccentric friend (Lloyd) from terrorists, and solve an alternative-plutonium crisis… all while trying to ensure he has a future to get back to!

Now, fans old and new will experience the thrill of Back to the Future like never before – on a big hi-def screen with a full symphony orchestra performing Alan Silvestri’s dazzling musical score live in synch with the movie.

Audiences will also be in for an exclusive treat: approximately twenty minutes of brand new music added by award-winning composer Silvestri to the film's score especially for these unique live orchestra presentations.

Does anyone know if the orchestra will replace the whole musical score including The Power Of Love, Earth Angel, Mr Sandman, Johnny Be Goode etc or just the classical score?

Opera North response:
Hi Gary, thanks for your question. The Orchestra of Opera North will be playing the incidental music by Alan Silvestri, plus more music specially written for this format of performance. The original songs will be played as per the original through the same system as the dialogue and sound effects. Should be a great night!
