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' 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!
