The Tenerife International Film Music Festival (FIMUCITÉ), which will take place from June 27 to July 2, sponsored by Cabildo Insular de Tenerife, Canary Islands Government and Santa Cruz and La Laguna City Councils, will extend its offer to music and comic lovers with the World premiere “Suite” for “Thor”, by Patrick Doyle, box office hit film directed by Kenneth Branagh. The Tenerife Symphony Orchestra and the Tenerife Film Choir, with Cristina Farraris as choir master, will perform the score, conducted by the Festival composer and director, Diego Navarro, on July 1, at 21.00, at the Auditorio de Tenerife “Adán Martín”.
The Festival has always paid attention to the twinning among different cultural styles, as the American film and comics have had for years. This premiere means a step forward in the tradition FIMUCITÉ has had since the beginning, staging premiere concert performances for so well known films such as “Iron Man” or “Spiderman 3”, and the performances of “Superman” or “Superman Returns”.
It is worth mentioning “Astroboy”, the film based on the world-famous anime by Osamu Tezuka, which made Tenerife become the only place in the World to be presented before the opening of the film. Regarding the Spanish comics, the Festival is also very involved with this type of art, which has culminated, among other collaborations, in the poster Alfonso Azpiri, unquestionable veteran and author of characters such as “Lorna” and “Mot”, designed for FIMUCITÉ 3.
