Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the concert hall…
The original summer movie blockbuster, with the Academy Award®-winning score by composer John Williams, Jaws in Concert is an unforgettable film-with-live-orchestra experience – especially when the Orchestra is the Royal Scottish National Orchestra!
Directed by Academy Award® winner Steven Spielberg, Jaws set the standard for edge-of-your-seat suspense, quickly becoming a cultural phenomenon and forever changing the movie industry. When the seaside community of Amity finds itself under attack by a dangerous great white shark, the town’s chief of police, a young marine biologist and a grizzled shark hunter embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast before it strikes again. Featuring an instantly recognisable and unforgettable score that evokes pure terror, Jaws remains one of the most influential and gripping adventures in motion picture history.
The RSNO and EIFF are delighted to bring audiences the chance to experience the power of a live symphony orchestra performing John Williams' entire score in sync with one of the greatest motion pictures of all time.
In the words of Chief Brody, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat!”
