"The Lord of the Rings" trilogy had it all: gripping story, epic action, groundbreaking special effects, stellar performances and one heck of a kickass musical score. For two nights only -- Friday and Saturday, October 8 and 9, at 7:30 p.m. -- "LOTR" fans can experience all of that as they never have before. New York City's famed Radio City Music Hall is presenting two special screenings of "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" accompanied by live concert performances of Howard Shore's Grammy-winning score.
Under a 60-foot-wide screen, 300 musicians -- Switzerland's 21st Century Symphony Orchestra, the Grammy-winning Brooklyn Youth Chorus, the Dessoff Symphonic Choir and famed soprano Kaitlyn Lusk, all directed by Maestro Ludwig Wicki -- will perform the entire rousing, spine-tingling "Two Towers" soundtrack while Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli slay Orcs at Helm's deep, Merry, Pippin and the Ents attack Isengard, and Sam and Frodo trek toward Mount Doom (while sharing plenty of sentimental moments, of course).
"The Fellowship of the Ring" got the same treatment last year, and more than 10,000 people flocked to Radio City in a two-day span to take it in. This year, that could be you. For tickets, head over to: TheRadioCityLOTRconcert.com, Ticketmaster.com or call 866-858-0008.
