‘¡De película!’, film music with Hollywood stars

‘¡De película!’, film music with Hollywood stars

On 1 September at 20:00 in the Kursaal Auditorium, the Basque National Orchestra will turn out in its finest to perform the scores of the biggest box-office hits: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, ‘Titanic’, ‘Child's Play’, ‘The Mask’, ‘The King's Speech’, ‘Life is Beautiful’ and many more.  Two dub actors will voice characters such as Jack Sparrow, Forrest Gump, George VI and Chucky and will add maximum authenticity to an exciting film music concert.

Tickets are already on sale for €25 on euskadikoorkestra.eus and at the Kursaal ticket booth.

¡De película! is a film music concert for all ages that plays around with the ‘invisible’ elements in every film screening: the music and the characters’ voices. Thanks to dub actors Jordi Brau and Luis Posada, Hollywood’s biggest characters will be participating in this concert. The evocative effect of their voices, in combination with the musical performance by the Basque National Orchestra and the projection of images, will transport us to films such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Titanic, The Mask, The King's Speech, Forrest Gump or Mission: Impossible, among many others.

This project was originally by the Vallés Symphony Orchestra, with a script specifically created to accompany it, becoming a huge success in all the concert halls it has already been performed in. Now the Basque National Orchestra adopts this original and different concert format for this unique event in San Sebastian on 1 September.

Jordi Brau regularly dubs the voices of actors such as Sean Penn, Nicolas Cage, Kenneth Branagh, Dennis Quaid, Robin Williams, Tom Cruise, Daniel Day-Lewis, Roberto Benigni and Tom Hanks, among others. On the other hand, the voice of Luis Posada is used for actors such as Johnny Depp, Jim Carrey, Adrien Brody, John Cusack or Leonardo Di Caprio. Their speech at this concert will be in Spanish, with subtitles in Basque.

The conductor for this concert will be Rubén Gimeno, the current conductor of the EGO (Euskal Herriko Gazte Orkestra) and is sponsored by Laboral Kutxa.

Tickets are on sale for this event at a general price of 25 euros on the website euskadikoorkestra.eus and at the Kursaal's ticket booth. Those with Basque National Orchestra season tickets can purchase a maximum of two tickets at a reduced price of 20 euros.
