COMPO! The Matrix Live

Win a pair of tickets to see The Matrix with a live orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall!

You may know The Matrix i nside out, but you’ve never seen it quite like this. For one night only on Sunday 23 October, the Wachowskis’ genre-busting cyber-hit is coming to London's Royal Albert Hall with a live orchestra in tow.

At The Matrix Live , Berlin’s NDR Pops Orchestra will play Don Davis’s score in front of a screening of the movie, showing off a composition that may not be as hummable as Star Wars, but deserves to be recognised as one of the most interesting pieces of film music of recent years. “It’s not music like John Williams or Max Steiner, but it has its own quality,” says conductor Frank Strobel. “The film was a new step in cinema, and the music represents the new step as well. When you listen carefully to the music you understand that it’s not what is usually done in films. It’s a special score and it’s representative of the ideas in the film, and I think that helps make the film stronger.”

We’ve got two top-price tickets for the screening on Sunday 23 October to give away to one lucky winner. All you’ve got to do to stand a chance of spending an evening in the company of Neo, Morpheus and an orchestra is to answer the question that lies on the other side of this link (along with some terms and conditions). The closing date for the competition is Wednesday 21 September.

The Matrix Live comes to the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 23 October. For more information, or to book tickets, visit or call 020 7589 8212 .
