Experience Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark live in concert

The legendary first film in the Indiana Jones series, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, is something, but seeing it live in concert is something special! Spectacular chases, impressive stunts and caricatured villains - topped with a good dose of humour - alternate at a rapid pace in this wonderful adventure film from director Steven Spielberg. 

The film will be shown on a large screen and John Williams’ legendary score will be performed in full for the first time since they recorded the original soundtrack in 1981. The Residentie Orchestra will be led by Dirk Brossé, an absolute specialist in the music of John Williams. 

It was John Williams himself who asked Brossé to lead a world tour of Star Wars music. After Star Wars, Brossé now returns for another gem from the oeuvre of John Williams: Raiders of the Lost Ark. Experience it yourself - get your tickets today!

About Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

Indiana Jones is the classic hero in this adventure set in the 1930s, which follows the quick-witted and determined archaeologist as he hunts for the Lost Ark of the Covenant. Often facing insurmountable odds, Indy always manages to succeed in the nick of time, joined by endearing companions and opposed by notorious villains. 

The film became even more legendary due to the equally spectacular, Grammy© Award-winning music by John Williams - The Raiders March, who doesn't know it!

Originally released in 1981 as a collaboration between George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, Raiders of the Lost Ark redefined the possibilities of adventure cinema and launched actor Harrison Ford to legendary status.
