The “Superman in Concert” event, which was scheduled to take place at the Royal Albert Concert Hall in London, England on Tuesday, October 27, was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and was originally supposed to take place on Saturday, March 27, 2021. The concert was pushed back even further, and is now scheduled for Friday July 16, 2021.
Celebrating Hollywood’s greatest cinematic superhero, the Royal Albert Hall event will see “Superman: The Movie” played in high-definition on the big screen, whilst John Williams’ triumphant original score is performed by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra live to picture.
Directed by Richard Donner, and showcasing a young Christopher Reeve, Superman (1978) features a star-studded cast including Margot Kidder as intrepid reporter Lois Lane, Gene Hackman as the villainous Lex Luthor, and the inimitable Marlon brando as Jor-El.
Donner’s beloved film adaptation relays the inspiring origins of Superman, from his narrow escape as an infant from the doomed planet Krypton, to his formative years on a farm in Smallville, Kansas, and finally to his arrival in Metropolis, where he leads dual lives as mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent and as the mythical ‘Man of Steel’.

I can’t imagine how incredible this would sound being played live by that great orchestra. I will never forget seeing this movie on opening day weekend. I’ve never left a movie theater so elated. One memory I will have in my mind when I leave this Earth.
