The Long Center presents Star Wars: A New Hope
The Long Center presents Star Wars: A New Hope, with a live score featuring the Austin Symphony Orchestra. John Williams’ legendary Star Wars score didn’t just enhance a great story, it gave life to an entire galaxy. From “Binary Sunset” to the “Imperial March,” the themes of “A New Hope” - celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2017 - ushered in a renaissance of film music, the likes of which Hollywood hadn’t seen in decades. Williams created fully-formed characters and a compelling narrative in which millions of fans could lose themselves without ever having to open their eyes.
