'Star Trek' concert tour pairs films with orchestra

Fans can watch J.J. Abrams’ reboot of the films on the big screen accompanied by live music.

Fans of Star Trek will soon be able to follow the adventures of the crew of the USS Enterprise in their favourite films as the popular franchise goes where it has never gone before, with       screenings accompanied by a symphony orchestra.

Director J.J. Abrams’ 2009 reboot of Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness will be shown on the big screen in high definition accompanied by live music.

“The events will celebrate the extraordinary collaboration between film and music as Michael Giacchino’s scores are brought to life on stage,” organisers said in a statement.

The Star Trek: Live In Concert tour will begin with two performances in Lucerne, Switzerland next month followed by three more in London before moving to Houston, San Diego and Philadelphia in the United States in July, and Toronto, Canada in March next year. No word on whether it will come to Asia yet.

Viacom’s Paramount Pictures, CBS Consumer Products , 21st Century Symphony Orchestra and others are launching the tour. — Reuters
