The Best of Ennio Morricone

Stadtcasino Basel
Thursday, 11 January

World-renowned film composer Ennio Morricone has created legendary film scores. He has written over 500 film scores for cinema and television. Among his most important works are the soundtracks to "The Hateful Eight," "Once Upon a Time in the West," "Django Unchained," "Kill Bill 2," "My Name is Nobody," "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly," "Once Upon a Time in America," "A Fistful of Dollars," "The Untouchables," and “The Mission.” Morricone's music for "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" holds second place on the list of the 200 best soundtracks of all time. Some of his compositions even found their way into the pop charts!
Over 80 soloists, singers, and musicians from the Milano Festival Opera, led by renowned conductors Marco Seco and Marcin Wolniewski, will take the stage to bring Morricone's stirring music to life. The technically sophisticated screen animation with the original film scenes will condense the gripping atmosphere to infinity and bring the famous goosebumps effect that no one can resist! Morricone has often been nominated for an Oscar with his creative music, winning twice: in 2007 for lifetime achievement and in 2016 for the music to the film “The Hateful Eight.”
Tickets are CHF 65.20-120.50.
