  • Return of the King - The Return Of The King production presents astonishing staging, lighting, authentic replica wardrobe costumes, special effects and a state of the art light show as well as the anti-gravity 45 degree lean (seen in the "Smooth Criminal" video) and a recreation of the fan/smoke stage platform popularly known in Jackson's live performances. In short, Return of the King is world class entertainment.

Doors: 6:00 PM, Showtime: 7:30 PM All Ages Ludwig Wicki, conductor Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia (Paul Rardin, Artistic Director and Principal Conductor) Howard Shore’s Academy Award®-winning score performed live to the epic motion picture. The Lord of the Rings – Live to Projection invites audiences to experience J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth like never before. As ever, the author’s indelible tale conveys a nearly illimitable sense of wonder and detail. Peter Jackson’s timeless films transplant the story’s scope and thrills from the mind’s eye onto the silver screen. Now, Howard Shore’s music takes center stage to impart the heart and soul of this epic adventure. Positioned beneath an immense projection screen, The Philadelphia Orchestra will perform Shore’s three-hour score to The Lord of The Rings: The Return of the King carefully synchronized to the film. This unique performance allows the original 2003 score to bear the narrative weight, creating a wholly new and dramatic live concert experience. The music of The Lord of the Rings is counted among film music’s most complex and comprehensive works. Howard Shore’s score is as rich and thoroughly realized as the story that inspired it. The complexity and grandeur of Middle-earth and the great War of the Ring are transmitted through the interlocking leitmotifs and grand vistas of Shore’s expressive writing. -Doug Adams Doug Adams is a Chicago-based musician and writer. He is the author of The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films. Tickets will be available Friday, March 10th @ 10AM via,, 800-745-3000, or the Mann Box Office.
