Struggling to think of a Christmas pressie for your parents? They’ll love this.

A musical celebration of the world’s greatest film composer will be coming to 3Arena next November.

After his retirement from the stage in 2019, Ennio Morricone began working on a concert production that was to succeed him. The production which was completed in mid-2020 includes iconic scenes from classic films, effect lighting and the Maestro’s long-time soloists, which will feature on stage alongside a symphony orchestra and choir, conducted by his son Andrea Morricone. On July 6th of this year, Ennio Morricone passed at age 91. The concert is a celebration of his life’s work, lovingly brought to life by his family and close collaborators.

The program will include iconic film scenes and never-before-seen footage of the Maestro and some of his illustrious collaborators. There’ll also be unseen footage of the legend at work, including interview outtakes.

Ennio Morricone has composed over 500 scores for cinema and television as well as over 100 absolute music works. Highlights, which will also be included in the new program, are his scores for Cinema ParadisoOnce Upon a time in America, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, The Untouchables and The Mission.

Speaking ahead of the new show, Ennio’s son Andrea said:

This is bound to be a bittersweet experience: I of course miss my father greatly, but to be able honour him by conducting a full symphony orchestra and choir playing his phenomenal music will be a great and deeply emotional experience and I hugely look forward to celebrating him with his fans around the world. 

Tickets for Ennio Morricone – The Official Concert Celebration go on sale this Friday (19th) at 9am on Ticketmaster.
