Adapted from the 1973 novel by William Goldman, Rob Reiner’s iconic film The Princess Bride brings the swashbuckling fights, giant monsters and sweeping romance of classic fairy tales to a modern audience. A farmhand named Westley must rescue his true love, Princess Buttercup, from the odious Prince Humperdinck, making new friends — and a few enemies — along the way. Experience one of the most treasured films of the last few decades at Symphony Center as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performs Mark Knopfler’s evocative score.
Nov. 25 only: Ticket holders are invited to a free preconcert conversation featuring Richard Kaufman in Orchestra Hall 75 minutes before the performance. The conversation will last approximately 30 minutes. No additional tickets required.
