Raiders of the Lost Ark in Concert

About This Concert:

Action! Adventure! Snakes! Revisit the film that introduced us to Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford)—Steven Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark—now with a live orchestra performance of John Williams’s original score.

Fun Facts:

  • Composer John Williams won a Grammy® for Raiders of the Lost Ark—his famous themes are the musical stars of hit films such as Jaws, Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Jurassic Park.
  • From the epic “Raiders of the Lost Ark” theme to the brassy fun of “Desert Chase,” the entire film score is performed in perfect sync with the action on screen.
  • For the Well of Souls sequence, producers acquired hundreds of snakes from English pet shops, but weren’t able to find enough to satisfy Steven Spielberg, who used cut-up hoses as reptile extras.
  • Actors Tom Selleck and Jeff Bridges were considered for the role of Indiana Jones before it was offered to Harrison Ford.
  • To add to the onscreen fun, some of the Minnesota Orchestra musicians will be in costume to celebrate Halloween. Audience costumes are welcome!

This film has been rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America.
