Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in Concert
New Jersey Symphony at the Movies
Estimated Concert Duration: 2 hours 40 minutes
Constantine Kitsopoulos conductor
New Jersey Symphony
Coming to New Jersey from a galaxy far, far away—experience Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back like never before as your New Jersey Symphony performs John Williams’ Oscar-nominated score live to the entire film. “You must feel the Force around you ...”
The battle for the galaxy intensifies in this thrilling fifth episode of the unfolding Star Wars saga. As Imperial Forces launch an all-out attack on the Rebel Alliance, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) flee to Cloud City, where they are captured by Darth Vader. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) journeys to the mysterious, marshy planet of Dagobah, where the wise Jedi Master Yoda teaches the young hero the ways of the Force.
Little does Luke know that all his Jedi training will be called upon so soon. A stunning revelation—and a seeming life-or-death duel with Darth Vader—await.
