the music is performed by the orchestra. Djawadi also promises that there were be some original footage shown too.
“What we’re planning on doing is building our own stage and have this be an immersive experience,” he says. “Game of Thrones has so many colors and locations, I want to take the audience to Westeros, so when we perform we want to have set designs and more involved visual elements.”
This is not the first television show to take its music on the road. Both Glee and Nashville have mounted popular concert tours, but both of those featured cast members performing numbers that were popularised on the air. The Simpsons mounted a concert at the Hollywood Bowl in 2014, but that was only in one location for a weekend. This program is different not only for its scope, but also because it is mostly orchestral.
Djawadi thinks that seeing some of the non-Western instruments he uses to create sounds will reward fans of the show and he is also excited at the prospect of performing a song or two. Djawadi composes on the piano, an instrument rarely used on the show. He ponders that a new arrangement of the theme music for the piano would be a good way for him to get in on the action, rather than just waving his baton.
Djawadi doesn’t want to give away any spoilers. Of course, it’s in keeping with the spirit of Game of Thrones to keep everything deadly secret and then shock fans with an unexpected turn of events. Finally, there’s a chance to see that happen beyond our living rooms.
