More on Gladiator Live below:

 

Following four sell-out performances at the Royal Albert Hall, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra is proud to announce that Gladiator – Live! is finally coming to Dublin. Ridley Scott’s epic 2000 film – winner of five Academy Awards – will be screened live in HD on a colossal 40-foot screen, while a staggeringly huge orchestra and chorus with ethnic vocalists bring Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard’s magnificent score to life on stage.

 

Take your place above the sand of the Colosseum, amongst the 50,000 spectators, in the beating heart of Rome. Hear the silence before the gladiator strikes and the noise afterwards rise up like a storm.

 

Gladiator stars Russell Crowe, who deservedly won an Oscar for his portrayal of Roman General Maximus Decimus Meridius. Betrayed by the emperor’s ambitious son, Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), who oversees the brutal and heart-breaking murder of his wife and son, Maximus is reduced to slavery. What follows is the thrilling story of the slave who became a gladiator and the gladiator who defied an emperor.

 

With four Grammys, two Golden Globes, an Academy Award and three Classic BRIT Awards under his belt, it’s little wonder that composer Hans Zimmer is named on the Daily Telegraph’s list of Top 100 Living Geniuses.  Besides his record-smashing score to Gladiator, he has also composed the music to such giant films as Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lion King, Mission: Impossible II, Pearl Harbor, The Last Samurai and Inception.

 

Get ready for the spine-tingling experience of a lifetime!
