KIDS can experience the unforgettable thrill of their first live orchestral performance during this October half-term - while watching one of the most acclaimed and popular family films of the past decade.
Ratatouille Live in Concert will receive its UK premiere at the iconic Royal Albert Hall in October, with the enchanting Disney/Pixar movie screened in full while Michael Giacchino?s classic score is played live on stage by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.
The movie was hailed as a masterpiece on release, and retains a score of 8/10 on IMDb and 96% on Rotten Tomatoes. The Guardian awarded it a full five stars, while the New Statesman's Ryan Gilbey heralded it as 'a wonderful, wistful comedy - sparkling'.
A richly flavourful mixture of comedy, action, romance and family fun, the film tells the story of Remy, a food-loving rat who risks his life in pursuit of fine Parisian food - whilst forging a friendship with a hapless young kitchen worker called Alfredo Linguini.
The movie won the Academy Award for best animated film, while Michael Giacchino's glorious score won a Grammy Award and was nominated for an Oscar.
Ratatouille Live in Concert, which takes place on Wednesday 28 October, is the latest in the Hall's pioneering series of film-and-live-orchestra shows, following the likes of Frozen, Titanic and Star Trek.
The event aims to allow younger audiences to experience the power of a live orchestra and appreciate the role that music plays in a film, all within the spectacular surroundings of London's most iconic venue, and includes a limited number of child-rate tickets, while under 4s go free, sitting on a parent or guardian's lap.
£19.84-£38.20 (limited number of reduced price tickets available for under-16s, kids under 4 go free with a paying adult; prices include a £2.50 booking fee and 2% card handling fee)
