Filmmaker Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” will be screened at London’s Royal Albert Hall, with Danny Elfman’s score being performed by a live orchestra and choir.
Royal Albert Hall announced that it will on December 12 offer a “Disney in Concert” event that will screen “Alice in Wonderland”, said The Hollywood Reporter.
The event is part of the venue’s popular “Live Score” series that screens films with the soundtrack being played live.
Its most recent such event was “Frozen: Live in Concert” last week. “This is a first for Alice in Wonderland,” a spokeswoman said.
The 2010 fantasy film was written by Linda Woolderton.
It sees a 19-year-old Alice (Mia Wasikowska) return to the world she first entered as a child.
The film includes such beloved characters as the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), the White Queen (Anne Hathaway), the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) and the White Rabbit (Michael Sheen).
“This high-definition screening with live orchestral and choral accompaniment from the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, the Maida Vale Singers and the Cardinal Vaughan School Schola Cantorum, all conducted by John Mauceri, will bring the record-breaking film to life in an incredible feast for the eyes, ears and heart, captivating an audience of all ages,” the Royal Albert Hall said.
