The Tolkien family and the Estate issued a statement before the film's release to make clear that they did not approve of, authorize or participate in the making of this film, and did not endorse it or its content in any way.
Could you write five thousand words on the influence of Norse elements in Gawain?
J.R.R. Tolkien: Yes, absolutely. When would you like it by?
Professor Wright: This evening.
Tolkien gives Edith a flyer for a concert at Birmingham Symphony Hall of Richard Wagner's Tetralogy "The Ring Cycle" given by the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. Symphony Hall was opened in 1991. Before that, orchestral concerts were given at Birmingham Town Hall. While the name of the Birmingham Orchestra is correct for the period, it did not have a chorus until 1973. The venue that they then go to in the film is not a concert hall, but an opera house, so it's unlikely that a symphony orchestra would have given the concert in that venue, since it would have been a full performance. Still, at least they didn't call it a quadrilogy, eh?
