Bilbo Baggins, the hobbit, is a peaceful sort of  cozy hole in the Shire, a place where adventures  are uncommon and rather unwanted. So when the  wizard Gandalf whisks him away on a treasure hunting  expedition with a troop of rowdy dwarves, he's not  entirely thrilled. Encountering ruthless trolls,  beastly orcs, gigantic spiders, and hungry wolves,  Bilbo discovers within himself astonishing strength  and courage. And at the ultimate confrontation  with the fearsome dragon Smaug, the hobbit will brave  the dangers of dark and dragon fire alone and  unaided. Brilliantly conceived to evoke Tolkien's  richly imagined Middle Earth, this production features  an original score written for Renaissance era  instruments outstanding ensemble acting by the best  performers available to the BBC and innovative sound  techniques designed to present a hobbit's eye view  of Bilbo's adventures. A fitting tribute to the  centenary of J.R Tolkien's birth. The Hobbit will  captivate longtime fans and the newly initiated  alike.
