Vision Nine and BBC Worldwide are delighted to announce the UK and European premiere of the hugely popular Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular at six major city venues in May 2015.
The live show, which was a sell-out on its world
premiere in Australia, will enjoy a limited run of twelve UK
performances in London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle and
Glasgow. It features over 100 performers and is conducted by Ben Foster,
who conducts and orchestrates the musical scores for the TV series.
Music will be performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and
members of the BBC National Chorus of Wales.
The show features a host of the Doctor’s famous
adversaries including the iconic Daleks and Cybermen, the spine-chilling
Silence and many more fan favourites. The live monsters provide a
dramatic contrast to the evocative and thrilling music written by Murray Gold,
who has been responsible for composing music for the series over the
last eight years, including the record-breaking (and BAFTA
award-winning) 50th anniversary episode Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor.
The show will also feature Murray’s latest score and
footage from the forthcoming series 8, which will be broadcast around
the world later this summer.
The live music will be accompanied by a big screen
presentation of key moments and specially edited sequences from the past
50 years of Doctor Who. Tickets will go on presale at the Venue Box Office 9am, Thursday 31st July, with prices starting at £20 plus booking fee. Call the Box Office on 029 20 22 44 88
Fans will discover the identity of the guest presenter for the UK shows in early 2015.

December 2012 receiving praise from the Australian media and fans alike.
The Herald Sun called the show “Evocative and thrilling in equal measure” whilst the Sydney Morning Herald said: “The whole experience brought unalloyed pleasure that in some cases amounted to a religious rite”.
