- John Scott
For one night only, Cadogan Hall is transformed with a screening of the 1922 film accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performing John Scott’s colourful score.
The story of Robin Hood has fascinated and inspired generations of artists. Legend of the silent film Douglas Fairbanks was no exception, his classic 1922 film featuring a most impressive display of pageantry in which the hero defeats Sir Guy of Gisbourne to win the heart of Maid Marian.
In the composer’s own words, ‘The film calls for an action packed score. There is romance, intrigue, terror, spectacle, suspense, and as the story progresses it demands more and more, culminating in the spectacle of a Royal wedding.’
