Maestro Marcello Rota conducts Nino Rota & Ennio Morricone

Music of two celebrated Oscar-winning composers in live concert

A unique show when Maestro Rota conducts the greatest hits of two celebrated Oscar-winning composers, Nino Rota & Ennio Morricone, joined by soprano Angela Silva. The Italian maestro brings the greatest soundtracks in the history of cinema from the past decades to remember the most iconic themes of Nino Rota & Ennio Morricone! Just think of movies like “The Godfather (Il Padrino)”, “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”, “The Mission”, “Romeo and Juliet”, “The Professional”, “Once Upon a Time in America” or “Aguenta-te Canalha”, among many others.

Moving images projected on a large screen from the films of Federico Fellini, Francis Ford Coppola, Giuseppe Tornatore, and Sérgio Leone will accompany the magic of live music. This will be a unique moment to experience the greatest movie music in a live concert!

Touring party 4 people. A local 50-piece orchestra is required.
