The first notes of the new Gulbenkian Música season will sound in the magnificent setting of Vale do Silêncio and will be played by the Gulbenkian Orchestra. In this moment of opening and sharing, in association with the festival “Festas na Rua”, the programme is composed of themes by the famous film music composer, winner of five Oscars, John Williams. The orchestral grandeur associated with cinema will come to life in themes from the soundtracks of films like E.T. -The Extraterrestrial, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, Schindler’s List or Star Wars.
