Oscar-winning Gladiator to be performed live at Dubai Opera

It won five Oscars, one for Best Sound, and was nominated for Best Original Music Score, and now the Russell Crowe Roman-era action epic Gladiator will be getting the Dubai Opera treatment later this year, with Gladiator Live.

Taking place on Wednesday September 18 and Thursday 19, Gladiator will be projected up in its entirety on the Opera’s large screen, accompanied by a live performance of the Oscar-nominated soundtrack courtesy of the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra.

Hans Zimmer’s iconic score will be performed live on two consecutive nights, before the weekend will see the third instalment of the Harry Potter series performed over the Friday and Saturday evenings (September 20-21).

It’s the third time the Opera has hosted screenings of Harry Potter, and this time it’s the Prisoner of Azkaban getting put on the big screen.

It too was nominated for an Oscar, with John Williams’ score being recognized as a huge part of the movie’s mystical feel, and you’ll be able to catch it live (and, presumably, if you saw the first two you’ll be front of the queue for tickets).

Tickets are on sale now at www.dubaiopera.com, with prices for each show available from Dhs175. You can get an early-bird discount of 20 percent if you book VIP or Platinum tickets before Sunday July 14.
From Dhs175. Sep 18-21. Dubai Opera, Downtown Dubai, www.dubaiopera.com
