The Sydney Opera House is presenting the James Bond Classic Casino Royale in concert. Audiences will enjoy the film featuring Daniel Craig in his first appearance as the famous MI6 00 agent, James Bond. Craig is joined in the film by Eva Green as Vesper Lynd, Judi Dench as M, and Mads Mikkelson as the villainous Le Chiffre. The film’s exotic locations include the Bahamas, Montenegro, and Venice’s Grand Canal.
What makes this presentation even more special is that the film’s score, composed by David Arnold, will be played by the Sydney Symphony. The music will be played live and in sync with the movie, creating a musical and visual experience worthy of the quintessential spy.
Bond may be used to firsts, but this will be a special first to add to his list of accomplishments. This is the first time that Casino Royale will be played in concert. The film debuted in 2006 and quickly became the most successful reboot of the bond franchise, becoming the highest grossing film of all the Bond films.
The film and concert will be presented over two consecutive evenings in late February and early March. Tickets are already on sale and start at $49.
