Joker – In Concert: A screening & live orchestra performance of the award winning score

Joker is nominated for 11 BAFTA Awards and 11 Academy Awards, more than any other film, now see it with a live orchestra.

Joker, the ground-breaking, award-winning film will be screened with a live orchestra performing its award winning score for the first time ever in front of an intimate crowd on 30 April.

Todd Phillips’ blockbuster film and Hildur Guðnadóttir’s award-winning score will then head on a world tour with the first stop in Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Dublin, 19 May 2020.

The beautifully haunting score is integral to the story of the Golden Globe winning piece. The fusion of looming industrial soundscapes with raw, emotive string-led melodies – led by a lone cello – creates a melancholic shroud marked with moments of hope, which unfolds gradually to become a fever pitch of disquieting tension.

On the announcement of the world tour Hildur Guðnadóttir said, “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.”

Todd Phillips’ character study of a man lost in the depths of Gotham’s broken society was met with critical acclaim on release.

Tickets for the live orchestral rendition and screening go on sale Friday 7 February 9am. Tickets are €69.95.
