Star Wars in Concert: Return of the Jedi
Minnesota Orchestra conducted by Sarah Hicks - Orchestra Hall
Program Info: John Williams - Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
“I am a Jedi, like my father before me...” In the spectacular climactic sixth episode of the Star Wars saga, Darth Vader readies the second Death Star to unleash the final blow to the Rebel Alliance. A full-length movie screening accompanied by a live performance of John Williams’ Oscar®-nominated score brings this epic battle for the galaxy to life.
Did You Know? Return of the Jedi, the third installment of the original Star Wars trilogy, premiered on May 25, 1983, six years to the day after the first installment, Star Wars: A New Hope. In a career spanning more than five decades, John Williams has become one of America’s most accomplished and successful composers for film and for the concert stage, including the scores for all nine Star Wars saga films. The look of the Ewoks, the short Endorian creatures introduced in Return of the Jedi, was inspired by a breed of dog known as the Brussels Griffon, one of which Star Wars creator George Lucas owned at the time.
