Last summer’s presentation of the first Star Wars movie was a big hit! This July, Cape Symphony brings you the second installment in this famous trilogy.

The Cape Symphony Orchestra will present Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in Concert featuring composer John Williams’ GRAMMY®-winning score performed live to the film. Fans will experience the scope and grandeur of this beloved film in a live symphonic concert experience led by conductor Thiago Tiberio on Saturday, July 27 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, July 28 at 3:00 PM at the Barnstable Performing Arts Center, 744 West Main Street, Hyannis.

Since the release of the first Star Wars movie over 45 years ago, the Star Wars saga has had a seismic impact on both cinema and culture, inspiring audiences around the world with its mythic storytelling, captivating characters, groundbreaking special effects and iconic musical scores composed by Williams.

The film and its RIAA® platinum-certified soundtrack feature seventeen score cues composed by legendary Academy Award® and GRAMMY Award®-winning composer John Williams.

In the film, the rebels scatter after the Empire attacks their base on the ice planet, Hoth. Han Solo and Princess Leia are pursued by the Imperial fleet, while Luke Skywalker trains in the way of the Force with Jedi Master Yoda. Sensing his friends are in danger, Luke rushes to rescue them and finds himself confronting Darth Vader, who reveals a shocking truth.
