It has just been announced today! On Thursday, 30 April 2020, Todd Phillips’ film ‘Joker’ will be screened with the accompaniment of a live orchestra at the Eventim Apollo in London (UK), playing composer Hildur Guðnadóttir’s award-winning score for the first time ever.
Following that date, a UK & Ireland tour will be held during May-June-July 2020, with the possibility of an expansion to European and international locations later (TBA-To Be Announced).
The world premiere in London will be conducted by Jeff Atmajian, the conductor and orchestrator of the original soundtrack, having Dave Mahoney in charge of the rest of the dates of the tour.
In Hildur Guðnadóttir’s words “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”.
In Todd Phillips’ words: “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 it’s 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”.
