'Star Wars in Concert'
The music really was the best part of the Star Wars franchise. John Williams delivered a space opera that was brilliantly intricate and yet immediately accessiblehe merged the emotional wallop of Wagner and Strauss with George Lucas's crackpot pop philosophy, thereby inflating the latter to epic proportions. This tour, featuring excerpts from each of the six films, pits Dirk Brossé's 86-piece orchestra and 60-voice choir against a three-story HD LED super-screen, but we can go ahead and call Leia's metal bikini the unanimous winner here.
