"Michael Giacchino's music sounds different with a live orchestra," said Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow. "It surrounds you, strengthens your muscles, sweeps you into adventure and demands your heroic best. Hearing his music played live is one of my favorite things to do, and I'm honored to be part of this awesome event."
Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and B.D. Wong, Jurassic World, with its thrilling score by Oscar®-winning composer Michael Giacchino, earned a staggering $1.6 billion at the global box office and is the fourth top-grossing film of all time.
Set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, the Jurassic World theme park lets guests experience the thrill of witnessing actual dinosaurs. But something ferocious lurks behind the Park's attractions – a genetically modified dinosaur with savage capabilities. When the massive creature escapes, chaos erupts across the island. It's up to Owen and Claire to save the park's tourists from an all-out prehistoric assault.
Jurassic World in Concert is a follow-up to the currently touring Jurassic Park in Concert, which has been presented by more than 50 orchestras to date, with sold-out performances in cities including London, Paris, Melbourne, Toronto, Taipei and Philadelphia.
"In 1997, when Steven Spielberg first asked me if we were going to use a live orchestra to record The Lost World video game score, I never imagined that 20 years later I would be so lucky to have my work from Jurassic World be performed in concert halls by some of the greatest musicians in the world," said Giacchino, who will attend the May 30 event in Washington, D.C. "I can't wait for audiences to experience Colin Trevorrow's epic blockbuster with a live orchestra."
