The award-winning prodigal son is coming back home. Ennio Morricone is closing his European summer tour at the Arena di Verona next September 12, and his concert is a total must-go. The performance will cover some of his most famous compositions for cinema and television, played by a grand orchestra.
If you get emotional easily, make sure to bring your tissues, because masterpieces will align one after another. The Untouchables (1987), The Mission (1986), A fistful of dollars (1964), Once upon a time in America (1984) or The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) are just some of the legendary soundtracks that will sound next Saturday at the stunning scenario provided by the Arena.
86-year-old Morricone is a living legend. He has composed more than 500 pieces for the big screen and TV, and the value of his legacy and its influence on younger composers are undeniable. Don’t forget to book your tickets in advance for this once in a lifetime opportunity and, afterwards, dream of Morricone’s paradise at Palazzo Victoria.
