Event: Shin Godzilla and Evangelion clash in symphony concert

There will be a clash of the titans, as the Shin Godzilla vs. Evangelion Symphony crashes into Tokyo this spring. From March 22nd-23rd at the Bunkamura Orchard Hall in Shibuya, the music of Hideaki Anno’s Shin Godzilla and Neon Genesis Evangelion will be played in concert by a full orchestra.

These four performances have been executive produced by Anno himself, sponsored by Rebuild of Evangelion‘s Khara, Inc., with composition, arrangement and general direction managed by music producer and composer Shirou Sagisu. This event may sound familiar to some of you, and that’s because an Evangelion Symphony was held in 1997. This new concert will be the first time the score of Neon Genesis Evangelion has been performed by a full orchestra since then.

Each of the two dates has a matinee performance at 1:00pm JST, with an evening performance at 6:00pm JST. Tickets are available from 7500 yen (around $68 US) for a Class B seat in the afternoon, but prices go up to 14,000 yen (about $126 US) for a Class S seat for the evening.

Rest assured, we are envious of anyone who can get to this. We can just imagine, indulging in the high art of anime.
