Vision Nine and BBC Worldwide have announced the UK and European premiere of the hugely popular Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular at six major city venues.
The live show, which was a sell-out on its world premiere in Australia, will enjoy a limited run of twelve UK performances in London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow.
Here’s how excited they got in New Zealand for the groundbreaking show.
The show features over 100 performers and is conducted by Ben Foster, who conducts and orchestrates the musical scores for the TV series. Music will be performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and members of the BBC National Chorus of Wales.
The live monsters provide a dramatic contrast to the evocative and thrilling music written by Murray Gold, who has been responsible for composing music for the series over the last eight years, including the record-breaking (and BAFTA award-winning) 50th anniversary episode Doctor Who: The Day or the Doctor.
Fans will discover the identity of the guest presenter for the UK shows in early 2015.
“Evocative and thrilling in equal measure”- The Herald Sun.
“The whole experience brought unalloyed pleasure that in some cases amounted to a religious rite”- Sydney Morning Herald.
