Star Wars: a new hope in concert at the Movistar Arena 45 years ago, cinema and pop culture would experience a revolution with the theatrical release of A New Hope. On May 4, Star Wars Day, we will celebrate this anniversary with Star Wars: a new hope in concert, the screening of the first film of the legendary saga with the live soundtrack performed by the Colombian National Symphony Orchestra at Movistar Bogota Arena. On May 25, 1977, George Lucas premiered his third film and from day one it became a mass cultural phenomenon that crossed borders and languages to become the first global cinema blockbuster: Star Wars: A New Hope. The discovery of characters like Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, RD2D or Han Solo was tattooed in the collective memory of planet Earth. Almost half a century after its original premiere, the different generations of fans in Colombia will be able to relive the film, on a giant screen, with the original music (Oscar for Best Soundtrack-1977) by the immortal John Williams and under an experience that will transcend cinema . Maestro John Jesensky, who was already in Colombia leading the interpretation of the Harry Potter soundtracks in concert for his dates in Bogotá, will be in charge of conducting the National Symphony Orchestra of Colombia. The Movistar Arena will stand as the nucleus of that galaxy, far, far away, and the place where we will experience live music, eternal images on a giant screen and the shared emotion of the Colombian fans of the saga. Star Wars: A New Hope in Concert is the celebration of May 4, 2022, the date on which the international Star Wars community has commemorated their day since 2011, with a fantastic display. May the force be with us.
Colombia’s best concerts are live in the heart of Bogota. Are you ready for this experience?
