A special event in honour of the great Italian composer

The time has come to celebrate the world’s greatest film composer with a new concert experience. Directly following his retirement from the stage in 2019, Ennio Morricone began working on a concert production that was to succeed him. By mid 2020, the Maestro had finished curating the blueprint for a new production. The production will include iconic scenes from the greatest classic films, effect lighting and with the Maestro’s long-time soloists to be featured on stage alongside a symphony orchestra and choir, under the baton of his son Andrea Morricone.

Ennio Morricone – The Official Concert Celebration will be a unique, large scale arena production, curated by Ennio Morricone and conducted by his son, Andrea. The program will include iconic film scenes and never-before-seen footage of the Maestro and some of his illustrious collaborators.

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 Paradiso, Once Upon A Time In America, The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, The Untouchables and The Mission.

Between 2014 and 2019, he performed 111 concerts in Europe alone for audiences totalling more than 800,000 spectators, resulting in a combined box office gross exceeding €80 million. Ennio Morricone passed away on 6 July 2020 at the age of 91.

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 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.”

In 2022, Ennio Morricone – The Official Concert Celebration will see its first major tour, visiting numerous cities in Europe and well beyond.
