    This September, at the Royal Albert Hall, Casino Royale will be screened for the first time with the score performed live by a full symphony orchestra, as part of the venue’s ‘Films in Concert’ series.

    Casino Royale composer, David Arnold, who has scored five Bond films, will discuss his collaboration with the 007 franchise in a pre-concert question-and-answer session.

    Lucy Noble, Artistic Director at the Royal Albert Hall, said: “With the success of our Films in Concert series, we’ve been asked countless times when a Bond film will get the full orchestral treatment. We’re delighted today to announce the first ever Bond-film-in-concert: the 2006 blockbuster, Casino Royale, with David Arnold’s thrilling score performed live. Following the world premieres of Die Another Day, Skyfall and Spectre at the Hall, this promises to be another unforgettable event featuring these two iconic British institutions.”

    Grammy and Emmy award-winning composer David Arnold added: “It is a constant privilege to be a part of the James Bond universe. I’ve loved the series since childhood and, more significantly, I’ve loved the music. I couldn’t be more excited to be presenting the score to Casino Royale live to picture. It was a labour of love – as were all my Bond scores – and I’m looking forward to sharing it at this iconic venue.”

    Casino Royale, directed by Martin Campbell, is the 21st Bond film in the series, and the first starring Daniel Craig, with an international cast that includes Eva Green, Mads Mikkelsen, Jeffrey Wright and Judi Dench.

    Casino Royale in Concert is the first installment in a brand new James Bond Concert Series, produced by Film Concerts Live!, in association with EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (MGM).

    Just bought two of the cheap seats at the very top for the 2.30pm performance. Never attend these kinds of things due to the expense of travelling from Cornwall, but thought I'd treat myself. Now I've got 4 months to find someone to come watch it with me!

    Same!

    I'm still kicking myself for not seeing 'Harry Potter' and 'Lord of the Rings' in concert. Hopefully, this is just the beginning and the concert series will screen in other countries.

    Just tweeted the Royal Albert Hall asking if there are any plans for the concert to go on tour abroad. Their reply:

    "As far as we are aware, there are no plans for the show to go on tour."

    Did anyone arrange for their tickets to be posted to them? If so, have you received them yet?

    Some events post tickets straight away, others much nearer the time, I was just wondering which one this was. Hoping I hadn't been missed that's all.

    I checked the email and it said tickets were usually sent out 2 weeks before the show. (I went for e-tickets, which I now regret because it would be nice to have a paper one to keep.)

    And I wish you could be there too, @Some_Kind_Of_Hero!
