The concert includes John Williams’ iconic Imperial March from Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Alexander Courage’s classic theme to Star Trek: The Original Series, and more soundtracks from fantasy and sci-fi blockbusters.

Music from video game classics in this concert include the Super Mario Bros Theme, alongside music from some of today’s biggest-selling video games – Grand Theft Auto and Assassins Creed. The concert also features music from Titanfall 2, which the NZSO recorded for the hit game.
