The Artist in Concert

  • Category: Music & Theatre
  • Dates: Monday, 30 December 2013 to Tuesday, 31 December 2013

It has been two years since the Hollywood blockbuster The Artist took us back to the golden age of silent film, and charmed audiences with its fantastic storyline, nostalgic feel and award-winning performances.

Now, you can relive the magic all over again at the Royal Albert Hall with one crucial difference - you will be in the company of a full orchestra, which will be playing through the grandiose score as the film itself is screened above the stage.

The Artist - Live in Concert will feature renowned composer-pianist Ludovic Bource, supported by none other than the great London Symphony Orchestra itself, at the baton of conductor Ernst Van Tiel.

Whether you are already a captivated fan of the film, or indeed if you are entirely new to director Michel Hazanavicius' masterpiece, this extraordinary event seeks to communicate the chaotic time for cinema between the late 20s and the early 30s.

With the performances taking place on December 30th and the 31st, the event makes for an ideal New Year activity for film buffs, particularly as it will mark the first time that the Royal Albert Hall has opened its doors between Christmas and New Year.

In addition to the LSO providing the score, attendees have been promised improved visuals with an enormous HD television to watch the action on.

There will be two showings a day, with matinees at 3pm and evening performances taking place at 7pm.

For easy access to the venue, be sure to stay at the nearby Milestone Hotel, which can offer its very own glamorous surroundings as part of the Milestone Apartments offer.

As well as a complimentary bottle of champagne on arrival, you can expect luxury accommodation and an excellent romantic turndown for you and your loved one - the perfect end to a perfect day.
