This was taken during the Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, on April 16th, 2015.

Ian McDiarmid was asked to read Emperor Palpatine’s monologue from the end of the book “William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return (William Shakespeare’s Star Wars)” during his panel at the Star Wars Celebration Anaheim.

Hearing him go into his Palpatine voice was incredible, in person you could feel the power of his voice and it sent chills through everyone’s spines. He’s such an amazing actor, was a great experience.
