THE GODFATHER LIVE TOUR
The Godfather LIVE brings Francis Ford Coppola's Masterpiece Film to music venues for the first time with a stop at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on Saturday, January 24, 2015. Winner of three Academy Awards and countless other honors, The Godfather remains one of the greatest films in the history of cinema. Nino Rota's iconic score accompanied by the film's traditional Italian folk music and jazz comes to life on stage, performed LIVE by symphony orchestra while the film is simultaneously shown in high definition on the big screen. Tickets on sale Friday, August 1, 2014 at 10:00 AM. Tickets will be available at www.AXS.com, STAPLES Center Box Office or charge by phone at 888-929-7849. This concert is produced by AEG LIVE.
The Godfather, released by Paramount Pictures in 1972 to popular and critical acclaim, tells the story of the Corleones and their rivalry with other New York crime families between 1945 and 1955, as the title character (Marlon Brando) hands over the reins of power to his youngest son (Al Pacino). Also starring James Caan, John Cazale, Robert Duvall and Diane Keaton, the film won three Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Actor (Marlon Brando) and established Coppola's reputation as one of the exciting new breed of directors who revolutionized Hollywood from the late-1960s onwards. In 2008, an Empire magazine vote saw The Godfather named as the greatest film ever made, a distinction also awarded it by Entertainment Weekly and Metacritic. It came second in Sight & Sound’s 2002 list and Time Out's 2003 readers' poll, and is currently ranked at number two in IMDb’s all-time list.
Composer Nino Rota achieved international acclaim in the 1950s and '60s for his work with Italian directors Federico Fellini and Luchino Visconti, scoring the likes of White Nights, The Leopard, La Dolce Vita and 8 ½. His music for The Godfather, including its immortal "Love Theme from The Godfather," was ranked at #5 in the American Film Institute's list of the greatest scores ever written. For music lovers, film goers and anyone looking for an exciting and unique concert experience.
