This summer, relive the first installment of Peter Jackson’s fantasy adventure trilogy (based on the novels of J.R.R. Tolkien), with the music performed live by The Cleveland Orchestra! Howard Shore’s score captures Fellowship’s sweeping emotion, thrilling vistas, and grand journeys.
A long-lost Ring has been found and, through twists of fate, is in the possession of a small hobbit named Frodo Baggins. When Gandalf the grey Wizard discovers this Ring is in fact the all-powerful One Ring, Frodo must lead an epic quest to Mount Doom in order to destroy it. He is joined by Gandalf, Legolas the elf, Gimli the Dwarf, Aragorn, Boromir, and his three hobbit friends Merry, Pippin, and Samwise — the Fellowship of the Ring.
