Star Wars: A New Hope in Concert

Score performed live by the WASO

May the Force be with you! Experience Star Wars: A New Hope in concert, with the WASO performing John Williams’ epic Oscar-winning score live to the complete film. Nineteen years after the formation of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance when he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet of Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke's Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire. Although Obi-Wan sacrifices himself in a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader, his former apprentice, Luke proves that the Force is with him by destroying the Empire's dreaded Death Star. Please note: The film is rated PG as it contains some violent scenes.
