The Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich conducted by Frank Strobel, will perform on July 1 & 2 at the Tonhalle Maag Zürich, the music that Carl Davis composed for the movie “Ben-Hur” (1925, dir Fred Niblo) while the film is projected on a big screen.


The first movie version of Lew Wallace’s famous novel “Ben-Hur” from 1925 is often considered the first oversized spectacular film in movie history showing the first colored sequences and thousands of extras – a true super-film with gigantic action scenes and breathtaking mass choreographies, that produced costs of then-unbelievable five million dollars.


When: Thursday, July 1 & Friday July 2, 2021 at 19:30h

Where: Tonhalle Maag Zürich (Zürich, Switzerland)

Tickets: 85 CHF (78 €) – https://www.tonhalle-orchester.ch/en/konzerte/kalender/filmkonzert–ben-hur-1315362/
