RECENT EVENTS - The Artist - Live in Concert

Monday 30 December - Tuesday 31 December 2013

The Artist - Live in Concert | Royal Albert Hall
Running time 1 hour 45 minutes

Celebrate the New Year in style!

Two years after it charmed the world with its nostalgic look at the golden days of the Hollywood silent film, The Artist - Live in Concert now comes to the Royal Albert Hall for an exclusive UK premiere.

This multi-award winning film is dramatically brought to life on stage with the London Symphony Orchestra and composer-pianist Ludovic Bource, conducted by Ernst Van Tiel, playing the soundtrack simultaneously with a high-definition screening of the film.

Written and directed by Michel Hazanavicius, scored by Ludovic Bource and starring Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo, the film takes place in Hollywood between 1927 and 1932 and focuses on the relationship of an older silent film star and a rising young actress, as silent cinema falls out of fashion and is replaced by the 'talkies'.

The Artist received universal acclaim from critics and audiences alike when it was released. It was nominated for ten Academy Awards ® and won five including Best Director, Best Picture and Best Original Score, becoming the first French film to ever win Best Picture. It was also nominated for six Golden Globes Awards, winning three, and twelve BAFTAs, winning seven, which makes it the most decorated film in French history.

These events will mark the first time that the Royal Albert Hall has opened its doors for end-of-year concerts this century.


An allocation of seats in the Stalls and Arena have been reserved for visually impaired customers at the matinee concert on Monday 30 December.
