The Dallas Symphony Orchestra is back with another spellbinding concert keeping up with its promise of a year filled with “an eclectic and dynamic mix of musical genres” with “fresh perspectives.”
After treating Dallasites to a March concert that interwove 15 Drake songs with the masterful melodies of famed Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, the orchestra is back with a concert honoring one of the brightest stars in motion picture history, and everybody’s favorite alien.
In the last year, the beloved institution has paid homage to the illustrious composer John Willams by performing his iconic scores from both Star Wars and Indiana Jones, now it is time for another of his critically-acclaimed movies to receive the DSO treatment.
Conducted by David Newman, this month the Dallas Symphony Orchestra will be performing at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center for three showings of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial bringing the beloved movie’s award-winning score to life.
“Experience all the mystery and fun of their unforgettable adventure in the beloved movie that captivated audiences around the world, reads the Dallas Symphony Orchestra website.
“Complete with John Williams’ Academy Award®-winning score performed live by a full symphony orchestra in sync to the film projected on a huge HD screen!”
Screenings will take place on Friday, May 19th at 7:30 pm, Saturday, May 20th at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, May 21st, at 3:00 pm.
The Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center is located at 2301 Flora Street and tickets start at $39 per person.
