Szeretlek Magyarország reports that the Game of Thrones live concert experience makes a stop at Budapest, bringing spectacular video shows and a full orchestra.
The concert will take place on the 18th of May 2018 at the Budapest Sportarena. The composer Ramin Djawadi will conduct the orchestra, choir and the soloists. The musical performance will be accompanied by stunning stage effects and video footages.
‘The size and the spectacle of the performance will bring the world of Westeros and Essos to the audience in a fascinating way’ –
said Ramin Djawadi, the main composer of the series’ musical score. The tour took off in February 2017, three years after the preparations based on Djawadi’s plans have started.
According to the concert announcement, the fans of Game of Thrones love its musical score just as much as the plot twists and exciting events taking place in the story. The carefully composed songs have a big role to play in highlighting tension and emotional dilemmas, along with contributing to the depth of the fight scenes, thus bringing George R.R. Martin’s story to life.
Let’s not forget about the fact that the opening theme of the series has become iconic and cultic today, covered and adapted on several occasions.
So, what should one expect from the concert, aside from the series’ score?
The organisers say that they’ve compiled footage and images especially for the tour.
Ramin Djawadi worked previously on the 2008 Iron Man, the musical score of which was nominated for a Grammy. He also worked on Pacific Rim, Clash of Titans and Warcraft.
He was nominated for an Emmy for his work on Game of Thrones, for Westworld, which is broadcast by HBO as well, for FlashForward and for Prison Break.
From his latest projects, Szeretlek Magyarország highlights the musical score of The Mountain Between Us, which premieres in cinemas this October.
The Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning series is watched by tens of millions of people around the world. The characters and particular scenes have inspired an endless collection of memes, and a Hungarian designer too,
whose work was introduced to the cast not long ago.
