TOMB RAIDER MUSIC SUITE LIVE IN
[ 20 July 2016 ]
Twenty years ago, when the first
Tomb Raider game was released and the world was introduced
to its heroine, Lara Croft, few could have predicted
its extraordinary impact and success. Tomb Raider games
have now sold over 45m copies, making it one of the
most successful gaming franchises in the world. Lara
Croft is the most recognisable character in gaming,
with Time Magazine naming her in their Top 100 Most
Influential People Who Never Lived, alongside Sherlock
Holmes, Hamlet and Mr Spock. The game has spawned two
major motion pictures, with a third in production.
To celebrate 20 years of the Tomb
Raider franchise and the world famous Lara Croft, composer
Nathan McCree, who wrote the music for the first Tomb
Raider games, has created a 70-minute concert suite
for full orchestra and chorus based on his original
themes as well as extensions and variations of original
tracks from the first three Tomb Raider titles.
McCree's Tomb Raider Theme has
been re-used, arranged and adapted in many of the Tomb
Raider incarnations, including the movies, and is as
famous in the game world as the James Bond Theme in
the movie world. Tomb Raider - Live In Concert gives
fans the unique chance to hear McCree's famous themes
played by an orchestra live for the first time - and
experience the excitement and power of full orchestral
music live and loud!
McCree says: "This is a wonderful
opportunity for the fans, as well as me, to hear the
music as I had always intended it."
On a giant screen above the orchestra,
the story of 20 years of Tomb Raider will be told with
incredible in-game footage and images; a fantastic opportunity
to revisit some of the greatest scenes and adventures
of Lara Croft and see the development of the character,
stories and design behind the legendary game.
Tomb Raider - Live In Concert
promises to be the Game Music event of the year: a unique
musical and visual experience celebrating one of the
greatest and most popular games ever created. No fan
will want to miss it.
