Game Of Thrones Live Concert Experience
Savvy fans know that the first season was a very direct rendering of George RR Martin's wildly successful fantasy novels, but successive seasons strayed anywhere between slightly and noticeably away from the initial literature. Fans have followed very closely.
All plotlines unfold from House Stark, which was led by patriarch Ned Stark until he died all the way back in Season 1. His five children and bastard son Jon Snow became essential focus of the series, although a few of them have been in the middle of untimely death and other major surprises. The Lannisters are one of the most powerful groups in the mystical world, and the Targaryens have become major players in recent seasons.
So how exactly is a show with a massive cast of top-flight actors, a huge budget for camerawork and visual effects and gripping and powerful music going to be staged live, you ask? All of these questions have been addressed and answered, and early renderings of how the set will look are nothing short of awe-inspiring.
The people behind the scenes of the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience are not only going to successfully translate the cable television show into a live performance, they are going to stage one of the most elaborate and expensive live performances in all of 2017. The initial pilot for the show which premiered in 2011 had a budget of around $10 million, and the first season came in at about 60 million. Successive seasons have had larger budgets, and the sixth season was the first to eclipse $100 million in terms of overall cost.
Given how much return HBO has gotten on their investment for the show, there is absolutely no reason to doubt that they will be using the best of everything that money can buy when staging the series of live performances. The run will begin in Kansas City in mid-February.
A gigantic, high-definition video screen will be used to bring to life the massive congregations of armies and the breathtaking, sweeping landscapes signature to the regions. Three-tiered castle like structures will flank both sides of a sizable stage that can hold a few dozen actors when at capacity.
Additionally, a full choir and orchestra will help bring to life the sounds of the show. The same audio producer that has been in charge of the music for every single episode in the series will be serving the same role for the live performance, a move that is sure to ensure an almost seamless transition between two entirely different performance mediums.
Tickets are only a few clicks away for a tour that will visit some of the biggest indoor stadiums and arenas in all of the United States.
