The Lord of the Rings

The Return of the King

Film & music
Thrilling epic
Dates Fri 27 Sep, Sat 28 Sep, Sun 29 Sep Venue Sydney Opera House
Duration 3 hours 40 mins (incl. interval)

In 2013 we bring Peter Jackson's film trilogy to a close with 'The Return of the King'.

The first two Lord of the Rings movies have packed the Concert Hall with audiences who know just how thrilling it is to experience these epic stories with an orchestra live on stage. So make haste - you'll need to be faster than a wood elf, faster than a Black Rider, faster than Shadowfax himself if you want good seats for these very special performances.

The performance will conclude at approximately 10.40pm (5.40pm on Sunday).

Pre-concert talk in the Northern Foyer, 45 minutes before the performance. Speaker to be advised.
  • A screening of Part III of Peter Jackson's trilogy with music by Howard Shore performed live on stage.
  • Justin Freer conductor
  • Clara Sanabras * vocalist
  • Sydney Philharmonic Choirs
  • Sydney Children's Choir

*We regret that Kaitlyn Lusk , has, unfortunately, had to withdraw from the planned concerts with the Sydney Symphony due to health reasons.
