The Festival Jardins de Pedralbes and Sitges join forces to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Indiana Jones

A celebration that will allow us to relive this film classic on the big screen and with the soundtrack performed live

On the upcoming 19th and 20th June, The Festival Jardins de Pedralbes will be hosting the al fresco screening of Steven Spielberg’s film Raiders of the Lost Ark, on the occasion of the movie’s 35th anniversary. John Williams’ soundtrack will be performed live by the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Ernst van Tiel.  

The screening, in its original version with subtitles, is intended for all those who enjoy top quality, live music and who want to see cinema in a different and very special way. Screenings will take place on June 19th and 20th at 22:00, and the venue will open its doors at 20:00.

“Raiders of the Lost Ark (Steven Spielberg, 1981), the first of Indiana Jones’ adventures, was a secret very well kept by George Lucas, its producer and creator, to the point that very little was actually known about its storyline until its premiere. A nostalgic journey back in time to the magic of those adventure series and B-movies from Hollywood in the 40s and 50s, full of exotic settings, untiring malefactors and Amazons, Raiders of the Lost Ark works thanks to the prodigious narrative capacity of a jovial and playful Spielberg who offered the perfect images for John Williams to create a symphonic cavalcade that perfectly reproduces the adventure’s sound and that combines to perfection with the snide smile of the roguish adventurer par excellence who is given a face by the unforgettable Harrison Ford. Pure cinema, a recycling a classicism in the key of commercial postmodernity bathed in notes of musical emotion that make up Williams’ essential trilogy along with Star Wars and Superman”. (Àngel Sala, director of the Sitges – International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia).

Ernst van Tiel and the VSO

Prestigious Dutch orchestra conductor known mainly for having conducted the Brussels Philharmonic in the soundtrack of the film The Artist. Trained at the conservatory of Utrecht, he began to conduct orchestras for radio to later take charge of the baton for important Dutch orchestras like the Rotterdam Philharmonic. His reputation was consolidated thanks to the great success he achieved at the historic Mariinski Theater in St. Petersburg. For the occasion, he will conduct the VSO, that has extensive experience performing soundtracks and that recently was a huge hit accompanying the screening of Psycho.

The audience will also be able to enjoy the performances of the Barcelona Vocal Quartet (19 June) and The Fourchettes (20 June) at 20:30 at the Village stages, in addition to catering services and a DJ session following the screening.
