See a preview of "Lord of the Rings in Concert"
OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- A new experience in Middle Earth is coming this weekend to Oracle Arena. It is "Lord Of The Rings In Concert," and it is the first film screened with a live orchestra and chorus.
The film is epic in scope and the music is heroic and moving. Now concert goers are about to experience it a new way. While "The Fellowship Of The Ring" is shown on a 60-foot screen, 200 musicians and singers play the score.
Saturday's two performances are part of nine-city West Coast tour. The other two films in the trilogy will be staged in concert in the next three years.
