Casino Royale in Concert Coming to the Sony Centre

Sony Centre for the Performing Arts and Attila Glatz Concert Productions present

Casino Royale in Concert, featuring the Motion Picture Symphony Orchestra. For the first time ever in Canada, audiences will have the chance to experience James Bond on the big screen accompanied by a full symphony orchestra.

For those unfamiliar with the concept, watching Casino Royale in concert means that David Arnold’s musical score will be played live along with the film. So, audience members will be treated to the groundbreaking 2006 reboot of James Bond, with first-time Bond Daniel Craig, and a full symphony performance of the film’s score.

Conductor Evan Mitchell has previously led the live orchestra for showings of Jurassic Park and E.T. – The Extra Terrestrial. He’s looking forward to Casino Royale, though he knows the action-heavy plot make for a challenging live performance.

“It’s a high-wire act for everyone,” says Mitchell. “Some of the sequences are long, extremely impressive, and action-packed.”

Despite the technical prowess required, he’s looking forward to tackling a new live orchestra challenge.

“Casino Royale makes the first time I have ever done a concert format with an action oriented film. The score that accompanies this Bond film is like a shot of adrenaline.”

Surely, after taking in the infamous opening chase sequences, the audience will be feeling every bit of that energy.

The show begins at 7:30PM on Oct 11 and Oct 12, 2018. Before each show, at 6:30PM, there will be a pre-performance conversation with Toronto Film Critic and TV Host Richard Crouse and Conductor Evan Mitchell, which will give some behind-the-scenes detail on how the whole production comes together.
