James Bond fans rejoice! A full soundtrack to a 007 film is going to be played live for the first time ever later this year at The Royal Albert Hall.
Casino Royale (2006), arguably one of the best Bond films ever, is the film in question, and fans of the film and soundtrack will get a chance to hear it being played live this September in London.
The 21st Bond film was the first to star Daniel Craig, and will be screened with the composer of the film conducting the orchestra. David Arnold, who has also worked on several other films in the secret agent series, will be hosting a pre-concert Q&A session to discuss his work.
‘It is a constant privilege to be a part of the James Bond universe. I’ve loved the series since childhood and, more significantly, I’ve loved the music. I couldn’t be more excited to be presenting the score to Casino Royale live to picture. It was a labour of love – as were all my Bond scores – and I’m looking forward to sharing it at this iconic venue,” Arnold said.
Over the last 146 years the iconic venue has hosted everyone from Winston Churchill to Adele.
Casino Royale will be screened as part of the Films in Concert series and the first of the James Bond concert series. The venue has also hosted world premieres for Skyfall (2012), Die Another Day (2002) and most recently Spectre (2015).
