When J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness hit the big screen in April 2013, it quickly became the highest grossing Star Trek film in history. Now, the film is making a reappearance in Philadelphia—though, this time at the Mann with a little live orchestration help from the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Conducted by David Newman, the Philadelphia Orchestra's addition to Star Trek Into Darkness is happening Thursday, July 31 at 8:00 pm. It is an all ages show, and fellow Trekkies can grab tickets for it here starting Friday—$75 for Golden Circle, $14.50 for lawn.
Created by famed Hollywood composer Michael Giacchino, the Star Trek Into Darkness score is actually considerably darker than the 2009 Star Trek music, which Giacchino also composed. Additionally, it is the first score of any Star Trek venture to include piano in the score since 1991's Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. The same goes for the score's inclusion of a choir singing entirely in traditional Klingon.
