It contains all the fundamentals of the Star Wars legend. We meet for the first time, the young Luke Skywalker and his comrade Han Solo, the sage Obi-Wan Kenobi, the droids C3-PO and R2-D2, the wookiee Chewbacca and the relentless Darth Vader.

The latter's work, Oscar winner and many times awarded, sublimates the whole. It is true that from its inception, music has held a prominent place in the creations of George Lucas, interacting with images and calling for support for action. The spectator is always spellbound ...

Also, the cine-concert will be an exceptional event during which the soundtrack transfigures the film. This captivating score, performed live, makes the full projection of the cinematographic work unique in its kind for many music and cinema lovers!
