The performances will be conducted by Hollywood legend Richard Kaufman.

Just for interest, there will be sell out crowds for both shows, with the remaining tickets expected to be snapped up on the day, and a real big noisy brass section. The score, by Klaus Badelt and Hans Zimmer, calls for four trumpets, eight horns, five trombones and tuba. A vast percussion section will also be on display. A good old noisy film this one!

The orchestra has worked with Hans Zimmer previously as the RLPO played the recording for the soundtrack of the award winning film ‘Letter To Brehznev’.
