See Home Alone With a Live Orchestra This Christmas
Home Alone in Concert is coming to Ireland for the very first time with dates at The Royal Theatre, Castlebar on November 30, The Convention Centre, Dublin on December 1 and The INEC, Killarney on December 2.
A holiday favourite, this version of the comedy classic features renowned composer John Williams’ score performed live to picture by The Orchestra of Ireland. Over 100 performers – including the orchestra, as well as a choir – will be onstage playing along to Home Alone as it’s shown once again on the big screen.
Speaking of Home Alone in Concert, composer John Williams said in a statement: “Ever since Home Alone appeared, it has held a unique place in the affections of a very broad public. Director Chris Columbus brought a uniquely fresh and innocent approach to this delightful story, and the film has deservedly become a perennial at Holiday time.”
“I took great pleasure in composing the score for the film, and I am especially delighted that the magnificent Orchestra of Ireland has agreed to perform the music in this very special live presentation of the movie. I know I speak for everyone connected with the making of the film in saying that we are greatly honoured by this event and I hope that the audience will experience the renewal of joy that the film brings with it, each and every year.”
Macaulay Culkin stars as Kevin McCallister, an 8-year-old boy who’s accidentally left behind when his family leaves for Christmas vacation, and who must defend his home against two bungling thieves. Having previously packed out the esteemed Royal Albert Hall in London, tickets for the Irish Home Alone in Concert shows are priced at €28 (additional charges may apply).
