The breath-taking beauty of anime doesn’t just lie in the engaging storylines or unforgettable characters. In fact, you’ll find a crucial part of anime films and shows to be the soundtracks: music which helps to set the scene, convey tone, and power the story forwards. This summer, Londoners will get a chance to truly immerse themselves in the music of anime with a new concert – Candlelight: The Best of Anime, taking place on July 31, August 4, 6, 7, & 19, and September 3. You can find your tickets here.
A pair of beautiful venues – Paddington’s Grand Junction and Butcher’s Hall in Farringdon – are the setting for this memorable night of music, at which you’ll hear instantly-recognisable pieces from your favourite anime productions. The full programme features compositions from shows such as Sailor Moon, Death Note, Tokyo Ghoul, Naruto, Attack on Titan, and Dragon Ball, along with a Studio Ghibli medley that you’re just going to love.
A string quartet will be bringing the music to life, and the flickering candlelight will bring a new level of enchantment to these inspiring venues. Plus, with two performances on every night, you can easily fit this unforgettable concert into your post-lockdown schedule. It’s an absolute must for anime lovers, and a wonderful introduction to both candlelight concerts and anime for anyone else!
