Campbell once again introduced the world to a new James Bond in 2006 as the director of Daniel Craig's first film in the series, Casino Royale. Again, the film was lavished with huge international box-office success, and strong reviews from many critics who had grown tired of the series.
Casino Royale also features Mads Mikkelsen as “Le Chiffre,” Eva Green as “Vesper Lynd”, Judi Dench returning as “M” and locations for the film include the Bahamas, Montenegro, and a jaw-dropping finale on the Grand Canal in Venice. Featuring. Nicholas Buc conductor. Pre-concert talk.
