The repertoire also includes Gottfried Huppertz’s score for ‘Metrópolis’ (1927), by the visionary Fritz Lang, considered one of the great films of German Expressionism, and a classic of World Cinema.


‘Cyberpunk 2077’ is an adaptation of role-playing board game ‘Cyberpunk 2020’ and it establishes a world 57 years later in California, in the dystopia of Night City, with fascinating characters, incredible graphics and countless details that refer to cyberpunk culture. The universe of the game features a fictional rock group, Samurai, led by singer Johnny Silverhand, played by Keanu Reeves. The score of the game is over seven and a half hours long, filled with music from many genres, composed by Marcin Przybyłowicz, author of ‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ musical score, alongside P.T. Adamczyk and Paul Leonard-Morgan.


Tickets are already on sale for both thematic concerts inspired by “cyberpunk”, a subgenre of science-fiction borne from 80’s noir novels of authors such as William Gibson or Bruce Sterling, and their programmes will include one common section in both recitals, and one exclusive section in each repertoire, one focussed on anime, offering up delights such as ‘Akira’ or ‘Ghost in the Shell’, and another more film-oriented, featuring movies where robotics play an important part, such as ‘Robocop’ or ‘Pacific Rim’.
