The force awakens later this year, and worldwide fervour for the increasingly incredible looking, hugely anticipated new Star Wars film is already wide awake and ramping up to fever pitch.

Arriving cannily a mere couple of months before Episode VII is unleashed, this evening of soaring symphonic glories hand-picked from John William’s genius, decades-spanning scores for Episodes I through VI comes to Sage Gateshead on Friday 16th October. The one-night-only affair promises a soaring, searing ride through the rich, dense orchestral glories threaded throughout the legendary Skywalker saga, on the cusp of imminent expansion in the upcoming new film.

Bringing us up to date with the story so far and reminding us why we fell in love with these familial dramas in a galaxy far, far away, the timeless tunes will be delivered by the impossibly-talented, internationally recognised Royal Northern Sinfonia. The UK’s only full-time chamber orchestra – and the leading professional orchestra in the North East – are primed to deliver a galaxy and generation-spanning series of greatest hits from the always memorable, often transcendent body of music that has delighted generations past, and will make hearts both race and break for generations to come.

Royal Northern Sinfonia: Star Wars In Concert is at Sage Gateshead on Friday 16th October.
