Tucson Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to perform Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in concert, playing every note of John Williams’ music as the film in its entirety is projected above on a giant screen. In 2018 Tucson Symphony Orchestra performed Star Wars: A New Hope, the first of the films to be made. Now Tucson audiences can experience the second film of the original trilogy.
“You must feel the Force around you…”
The battle for the galaxy intensifies in this thrilling fifth episode of the unfolding saga. As Imperial Forces launch an all-out attack on the Rebel Alliance, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) flee to Cloud City where they are captured by Darth Vader. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) journeys to the mysterious, marshy planet of Dagobah, where the wise Jedi Master Yoda teaches the young hero the ways of the Force.
Little does Luke know that all his Jedi training will be called upon so soon. A stunning revelation–and a seeming life-or-death duel with Darth Vader–await.
