Oscar-winning actor Anthony Hopkins will appear at two concerts in the U.K. in July to present his own music for the first time plus scores from several of his films performed by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
The Welsh-born actor will present scores he has written including those for August (1996) and Slipstream (2007), which he also directed and starred in, and a new piece that he has written especially for the Birmingham orchestra.
Hopkins said, “There are themes and passages in these pieces that have been several decades in the making, and to bring them all vividly to life with one of the great symphony orchestras of the world is absolutely thrilling.”
