Paddington: Film with live orchestra
The little bear is back for a unique & exclusive orchestral live experience!
Come and enjoy the exclusive premiere of Paddington In Concert on October 14th 2018 at Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Paddington, the ground-breaking film Paddington will be presented in high-definition on the big screen while the music will be performed live by the 60 musicians of The Novello Orchestra, conducted by George Jackson with special guests; Nick Urata and Paddington!
From the beloved novels by Michael Bond, the director Paul King and producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER), the family film Paddington follows the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear who travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to fear that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the Brown family. They read the hand-written label around his neck (‘Please look after this bear. Thank you.’) and offer him tea, a name and a roof over his head. It looks as though Paddington's luck has changed - until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a sinister museum taxidermist who has an old score to settle...
Composer Nick Urata turns in a charming original score to the 2014 film adaptation of Michael Bond's beloved children's character Paddington. Mixing a cinematic English wistfulness with upbeat Latin themes, Urata has managed to create something that is both playful and, at times, disarmingly tender. The gentler themes, like the lovely waltzing "Journey from Peru" and "The Letter Home," blend austere piano melodies with subtle strings, while the more exuberant Latin-inspired tracks are bursting with percussion, brass, and Spanish guitars. A fun and heartfelt original score.
