The capital offers no shortage of iconic attractions for James Bond fans to visit on their London city break, but even the best of them pale in comparison to the sheer spectacle of seeing one of Bond’s biggest blockbuster adventures screened live with a world class orchestra performing the score.
This September, that’s exactly what fans of the world’s greatest secret agent can enjoy when the Royal Albert Hall hosts the world premiere of Casino Royale Live. The show, which sees the 2006 film screened with a score performed live by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra takes place on Saturday, September 30th and Sunday, October 1st, and has been described as a truly unique experience that has to be seen to be believed.
Bringing Bond to Life With A Rousing Live Performance
Based just a short walk from our hotel on Earls Court Road, the Royal Albert Hall has a long history of bringing Hollywood hits and live music together, with the likes of Jurassic Park, Titanic and Harry Potter all getting the symphony treatment in the past.
This month, it’s the turn of the Casino Royale to be scored live making it not only the first time the 21st James Bond film has been performed with live music, but also the first time James Bond score has ever been performed live in its entirety.
As special as the show is itself, it isn’t the only 007-related treat for fans taking their London city break with us here at the Amsterdam Hotel.
David Arnold, who scored not only Casino Royale, but four other Bond Films (The World Is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Quantum of Solace) will appear live before the screening to answer questions about his work on the Bond series.
