Classic Pixar movie Ratatouille is getting a live concert presentation for the first time ever in the UK during the October half-term.
The event will feature the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra playing Lost composer Michael Giacchino’s score live on stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday 28 October at 3pm and 6pm, with the Academy Award-winning movie being screened in full.
Lucy Noble, Director of Events at the venue, commented: “It was part of the Hall’s founding mission to foster a love of the arts and sciences across the country. With Ratatouille Live in Concert, we want to give children the chance to experience the unparalleled excitement of seeing and hearing a full orchestra for the very first time.
She added: “When clips from the movie were shown during our sell-out Pixar in Concert event, they simply brought the house down, and now we can’t wait to present the movie in its entirety. Ratatouille is a modern classic with an unforgettable score, and perfect fun for all the family.”
Released in 2007, Ratatouille tells the story of Remy, a food-loving rat who risks his life in pursuit of fine Parisian food – whilst forging a friendship with a hapless young kitchen worker called Alfredo Linguini.
Tickets are on sale at the official website now or on 020 7589 8212, with a limited number of child-rate tickets. Under-4s can go free, sitting on a parent or guardian’s lap.
Also coming up at the Royal Albert Hall is Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and the world premiere of the 50th anniversary Star Trek show.
