Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl in Concert – the most famous pirate adventure of all time, in a unique combination of a gigantic HD screen projection and live music performed by a symphony orchestra and choirs. From Disney in Concert Production, the project was the first ever to lay the foundations for the world phenomenon of film screenings with live orchestra accompaniment. Klaus Badelt and Academy award-winning Hans Zimmer’s most famous musical motifs came alive in front of the eyes of enthusiastic audiences at sold-out arenas around the world now finally arriving to amaze the Czech audience in June 9, 2018 at the O2 arena Prague and June 10 2018 at the DRFG Arena in Brno.
The glittering waters of the Caribbean Sea are an inexhaustible source of mysterious and exciting adventure for the charming rascal Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). His idyllic life, however, changes dramatically when Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) seizes his ship, The Black Pearl, and attacks the city of Port Royal, from where he takes the beautiful Governor`s daughter Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley). Her childhood friend Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), along with Jack, boards the fastest ship of the British fleet on a courageous expedition to save Elizabeth and the stolen Black Pearl. At their heels is Elizabeth‘s fiancée, the ambitious Commodore Norrington (Jack Davenport). Will has no idea, though, that Barbossa and the entire pirate crew are under the influence of a curse that condemns them to an eternal life of the un-dead and changes them every night into living skeletons. Only returning the stolen parts of the cursed treasure to its original place can break the curse.
The film will be accompanied by live music performed by the Hradec Králové Philharmonic Orchestra, a body recognized throughout Europe thanks to its regular performing in Europe’s most famous concert halls and at major international music festivals such as Prague Spring, Smetana’s Litomyšl Opera Festival and Janacek‘s Hukvaldy. The renowned Maestro Helmut Imig, who was at the very birth of Jack Sparrow’s pirate adventures accompanied by a live symphony orchestra, and who has helped the famous Pirates of the Caribbean music come to life in concert halls around the world since 2011, conducts the music.
The first part of this star-studded saga, Pirates of the Caribbean: the Curse of the Black Pearl received 5 Academy Award nominations (actor, sound mix, makeup, sound cut, visual effects) and will be screened in its original version with Czech subtitles.
