About the event:
Malta is a major Mediterranean movie star. Over a hundred spectacular films have been shot there including Popeye, The Da Vinci Code, Midnight Express, Troy, The Spy Who Loved Me, Never Say Never Again and Gladiator. Its ancient Medina has also famously served as a principal location for the sensational Game of Thrones. Tonight's concert, recorded as part of the Malta Festival in the Granaries, Floriana, with the seventy piece BBC Concert Orchestra, is conducted by Richard Balcombe. It features music from movies made on Malta as well as including other classic film scores, Out Of Africa and The Magnificent Seven, James Bond and Casablanca together with some of today's most popular film songs from The Greatest Showman, Bohemian Rhapsody, Frozen and Mary Poppins Returns. All of this, and a spectacular fireworks finale to the Main Title from Star Wars. The Piano Brothers perform alongside guest vocalists Louise Dearman (Wicked); Hannah Waddingham (Game of Thrones) and Bradley Jaden (Les Miserables). Presented by Charles Dance.
