Jamie Dornan’s ‘Jadotville’ one step closer to completion as RTÉ CO record score
18 Apr 2016 : Seán Brosnan
The score was by US composer Joseph Trapanese and recording took place in the RTÉ Radio Centre
Highly anticipated Irish siege drama ‘Jadotville’ – starring Jamie Dornan in the lead role – is one step closer to completion after the RTÉ Concert Orchestra recorded the score last weekend.

Due for release on Netflix later this year, the film is based on the 1961 siege of an Irish UN battalion by 3000 Congolese troops, led by French and Belgian mercenaries working for mining companies.

‘Jadotville’ was directed by Richie Smyth and produced by Alan Moloney for Parallel Films. The screenplay was written by Kevin Brodbin.

The score is by American composer Joseph Trapanese, who has also worked on the scores to ‘Straight Outta Compton’, ‘Oblivion’, ‘Allegiant’ and ‘Insurgent’ from ‘The Divergent Series’.

He was in Dublin to conduct the RTÉ Concert Orchestra for the recording, which took place in RTÉ Radio Centre, Donnybrook on 16 and 17 April.

This ‘Jadotville’ score will add to the RTÉ CO’s impressive list of film credits, including Stephen Rennicks’ IFTA-winning score to ‘Room’, work on Patrick Cassidy’s score for ‘Calvary’, nominated for a World Soundtrack Award, scores to ‘Ooops! Noah is Gone’ and ‘Norm of the North’ by Stephen McKeon, and Andy O’Callaghan's score to ‘Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie’. Film scores recorded with RTÉ CO Artist in Residence Brian Byrne include ‘Albert Nobbs’, which earned a Golden Globe nomination, an IFTA for Original Score and two World Soundtrack Awards.
