As if the prospect of director Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis reuniting in Phantom Thread isn’t exciting enough, Jonny Greenwood will be introducing a special screening of the new film with a live orchestra.
The Radiohead guitarist’s Phantom Thread score will be performed live by the London Contemporary Orchestra, conducted by Robert Ames, at Royal Festival Hall on January 31.
Greenwood will be introducing the upcoming film at the venue in London along with Anderson and film critic Mark Kermode.
The film, set in 1950’s post-war London, revolves around famous dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis), whose life is turned upside down when a young woman called Alma (Vicky Krieps) becomes his muse and lover.
Greenwood said: ‘It’s been a great pleasure to work again with Paul Thomas Anderson on his brilliant new film and with my good friends the London Contemporary Orchestra.
‘It’s such a special occasion for me to introduce my score for the first time to the Royal Festival Hall audience, a venue which has a great history of presenting both new music and music from films.’
A few tickets are still available from the Royal Festival Hall website here.
Phantom Thread is released in UK cinemas on February 2.
