Gary Lewis, Conductor 

You’ll believe a man can fly as Superman in Concert arrives in concert halls around the world, accompanied by the power of a full symphony orchestra performing John Williams’ triumphant original score live to picture! Directed by Richard Donner, and showcasing a young Christopher Reeve in a breakout performance that would make him an international superstar, Superman relays the hero’s inspiring origins, from his narrow escape as an infant from the doomed planet Krypton, to his formative years on a farm in Smallville, Kansas, and finally to his arrival in Metropolis, where he leads dual lives as mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent and as the mythic Man of Steel. Don’t miss this exciting chance to experience the film that started it all in a way you’ve never seen it before!
