Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular is a musical celebration of the iconic BBC series, featuring Murray Gold’s captivating music accompanied by specially edited video sequences of the Doctors in action, on the big screen.
The show features a host of the Doctor’s famous adversaries including the Daleks and Cybermen, the spine-chilling Silence and many more fan favourites. The live monsters provide a dramatic contrast to the evocative and thrilling music written by Murray Gold, who has been responsible for composing music for the series since 2005, including the record-breaking (and BAFTA award-winning) 50th anniversary episode, The Day of the Doctor.
Fifth Doctor actor Peter Davison has been confirmed as the host of a six-city UK tour of the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular in May 2015. Buy tickets HERE.
The live show, which was a sell-out on its world premiere in Australia, will enjoy a limited run of thirteen UK performances in London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow. It features over 100 performers and is conducted by Ben Foster, who conducts and orchestrates the musical scores for the TV series. Music will be performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and members of the BBC National Chorus of Wales.
The live music will be accompanied by a big screen presentation of key moments and specially edited sequences from the past 50 years of Doctor Who. Check out the UK dates below:
