Sir Anthony Hopkins will showcase some of his work as a classical composer at an exclusive concert this summer in Cardiff's St David's Hall.

Read the BBC Wales News story.

He will present several of his original scores, including music from his own movies August and Slipstream, plus a brand new piece written for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO).

The orchestra, conducted by Michael Seal, will also play music from some of the actor's best-known movies, including Shadowlands, Remains Of The Day and Silence Of The Lambs.

Sir Anthony said: "I am immensely happy to be working with the CBSO to bring my compositions to the UK for the first time.

"There are themes and passages in these pieces that have been several decades in the making and to bring them all vividly to life with one of the great symphony orchestras of the world is absolutely thrilling."
