As the first Jurassic Park celebrates its 25th Anniversary, Universal Brand Development and Film Concerts Live! have announced the world premiere of Jurassic World in Concert, featuring the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO), led by guest conductor Emil de Cou. Ahead of this summer’s release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the NSO will perform the complete Jurassic World score live, while Colin Trevorrow’s hugely successful 2015 film is projected in HD onto a massive screen. The opening night of Jurassic World in Concert will take place on May 30 with a special concert at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. 

“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.”

Tickets go on sale to Kennedy Center members on April 3 at 10am EDT, and to the general public on April 5 at 10am EDT. Details can be found at the Kennedy Center website. Further dates and cities will follow.
