Those of you who’ve peeked at our Fall Arts Preview know I have a soft spot for all things Lord of the Rings, and named The Lord of the Rings in Concert: The Fellowship of the Ring one of seven guilty pleasures this season. (What you don’t know is that my Gollum impersonation is excellent.)
Anyway, you get to watch Frodo start his quest to save Middle-earth on a 60-foot screen at KeyArena as the Munich Symphony Orchestra, Pacific Chorale, and Phoenix Boys Choir perform Howard Shore’s Oscar-winning score live. Any self-respecting fan will be there—this isn’t on the extended version DVDs.
One slight snag: Tickets are kind of expensive, ranging from $40–$170 plus fees, first-born child, etc. But Travelzoo is currently offering a deal for subscribers:
The following seats are discounted to the Oct 19, 7:30pm performance at KeyArena:
- 200 Level seats … $23.50 (reg. $47)
- Floor and 100 Level seats … $36 (reg. $72)
Not sure how long it’ll last, so get on it. I’ll see you there for a round of high-class geekery.
