Released almost 15 years ago, Gladiator is one of the best historical epics of all time. Russell Crowe plays the role of loyal Roman general, Maximus Decimus Meridiul. When the Emperor is killed by his corrupt son, Maximus decides to fight as a gladiator to avenge the murder of his family and his Emperor. For those of you who thought this Ridley Scott classic couldn’t get any better, l’Auditori is screening it this January, bringing the cinematic experience to a whole new level by accompanying it with the OBC (Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya) and soloist vocals by Clara Sanabras. Justin Freer’s work, as director of the show, has breathed new life into this classic while the live music of Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard adds drama and intensity to an already passionate film.
