Tickets have gone on sale for screenings of Todd Phillips’ award-winning film Joker, accompanied by a live orchestra playing composer Hildur Guðnadóttir’s award-winning score.
The first screening will take place at London’s Eventim Apollo on September 26th. The tour is being produced by London-based concert promoter and producer, Senbla.
The London opening of Joker – Live In Concert will be conducted by Jeff Atmajian, conductor and orchestrator of the original soundtrack, with Senbla’s Dave Mahoney conducting the rest of the UK Tour dates.
Guðnadóttir said: “I’m thrilled to get to see and hear Joker in the cinema with a live orchestra.
“When we recorded the music, the orchestra brought such depth and detailed attention to the performances that we were all literally holding our breaths during most of the recording sessions.
“It was a beautiful trip. I’m so happy to get to go there again and for an audience to experience that too.”
Director Todd Phillips said: “I speak for the entire Joker team when I say how thrilled we are to be working with Senbla and Ollie Rosenblatt on Joker – Live In Concert.
“I think its a wonderful way for audiences to experience Hildur Guðnadóttir‘s haunting and immersive score while bearing witness to Joaquin Phoenix’s descent into madness as Arthur.”
Joker – Live In Concert is produced and promoted worldwide by Senbla and following its London opening and UK and Ireland tour will embark on an international tour. More dates to be announced soon.
