Doctor Who gets a six city Symphonic Spectacular tour
Following on from the outstanding Doctor Who at the Proms, the Beeb have announced plans for a six-city tour of the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular for 2015.
Vision Nine and BBC Worldwide are delighted to announce the UK and European premiere of the hugely popular Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular at six major city venues in May 2015.
The live show, which was a sell-out on its world premiere in Australia, will enjoy a limited run of twelve UK performances in London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow. It features over 100 performers and is conducted by Ben Foster, who conducts and orchestrates the musical scores for the TV series. Music will be performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and members of the BBC National Chorus of Wales.
The show features a host of the Doctor’s famous adversaries including the iconic Daleks and Cybermen, the spine-chilling Silence and many more fan favourites. The live monsters provide a dramatic contrast to the evocative and thrilling music written by Murray Gold, who has been responsible for composing music for the series over the last eight years, including the record-breaking (and BAFTA award-winning) 50th anniversary episode Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor.
The show will also feature Murray’s latest score and footage from the forthcoming series 8, which will be broadcast around the world later this summer.
The live music will be accompanied by a big screen presentation of key moments and specially edited sequences from the past 50 years of Doctor Who. Tickets will go on general sale via the event and box office websites at 9am on Friday 1 August 2014, 2014, with prices starting at £20 per person.
