Official information:

“Following his retirement in 2019, Ennio Morricone began working with his son, (film)composer and conductor Andrea Morricone and concert producers GEA Live on the format of a new arena spectacular around his body of work.

 

The time had come to treat fans around the World to something new. By mid 2020, the Maestro had curated the programme for a fully produced new show with clips from the greatest classic filmhits, intelligent lighting and with the handpicked favourite soloists to be featured on stage alongside symphony orchestras and choirs, under the baton of his son Andrea Morricone. On July 6th 2020, Ennio Morricone passed at age 91.

 

In 2022, Ennio Morricone – The Official Concert Celebration, will kick-off its first major tour, visiting numerous countries in Europe, Asia and the Americas. Audiences will get to enjoy the scores from Cinema Paradiso, The Mission, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Once Upon a Time in America and the Untouchables, among others. The programme will not only include the most beloved compositions and scenes from the movies, but also pay hommage to the Maestro, with never before seen footage of the legend at work.

 

Discussing the new show, Andrea Morricone said: “This is bound to be a bittersweet experience: I of course miss my father greatly, but to be able honor 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.”

 

Floris Douwes, producer for GEALive adds: “It was a life-defining experience to be touring with Ennio for nearly 7 years and a blessing that we were able to create this new production with him by life in the knowledge that we would be staging a concert that had his full blessings. Fans so often asked for a concert with film clips. We will now honor that request in a way that is respectful of the Maestro’s artistic legacy.”
