The Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson's epic trilogy which has received a total of 17 Oscars, is coming to Zorlu PSM with a screening of The Two Towers and live performance of Howard Shore's Academy Award winning score by a symphony orchestra. On 20 and 21 May 2017, prepare for two nights in which you will experience The Two Towers like never before!

Adapted by J.R.R. Tolkien's novels, The Lord of the Rings captures a journey through the Middle Earth, in which a fellowship is tested with a constant archetypal struggle between good and evil. The Two Towers, the second installment, features a legendary battle, which only grows more epic with Howard Shore's groundbreaking score. Now, the music of the motion picture is coming to life before your eyes as you experience the journey once again with a live performance.

Internationally renowned composer Howard Shore is mostly known for his collaboration with Peter Jackson in the trilogy, which earned him three Oscars. He also has won three Golden Globe and four Grammy Awards. He regularly worked with David Cronenberg and Martin Scorsese in films such as A Dangerous Method, Eastern Promises, Hugo, The Departed, The Aviator and Gangs of New York, as well as with various directors in other productions such as Ed Wood, The Silence of the Lambs and Philadelphia. Shore's work has been performed by over a hundred orchestras in concerts throughout the world.

Sweeping through different styles and emotions, Howard Shore's music brilliantly captures the tone and themes of Tolkien's world, as well as the vision of Peter Jackson. The groundbreaking score of the legendary film will be explicitly relayed with a live performance in Zorlu PSM on 20 and 21 May 2017 with LOTR in Concert: The Two Towers.
