Roma Film Music Festival - Skyfall in Concert

It gives emotion, empowers images, and has the ability to make them unforgettable.

The Roma Film Music Festival, the eagerly awaited international event celebrating the world of soundtracks and great cinema, is back for its third edition.

The absolute star is, as always, Music and its protagonists, composers and directors, called upon to unveil the secrets of their collaboration with the great authors and their masterpieces in four immersive appointments and a national premiere cine-concert.

The title chosen to relive the adrenaline-fuelled thrills of Britain's most elegant 007 is 007 Skyfall In Concert, coming to the Auditorium Conciliazione for the first time with the voice of Walter Ricci and two replicas: Friday 12 and Saturday 13 April (8.30 p.m.). Directed by Sam Mendes in 2012, the blockbuster film won two Oscars, for Best Sound Editing and Best Song, for the track of the same name performed by Adele), today, after 12 years, it finds a completely unprecedented release. On the big screen Daniel Craig takes on the role of the legendary spy and on the Auditorium stage the full soundtrack signed by Thomas Newman is performed live, in perfect synchrony with the images, by the 90 members of the Orchestra Italiana del Cinema, which, conducted by Anthony Gabriele, is the first Italian symphonic ensemble to have dedicated itself exclusively to the interpretation of soundtracks.

New for this edition is the inauguration of a new space in addition to the Auditorium Conciliazione and the Forum Studios: after careful restoration, the former Teatro Euclide has become the Forum Theatre, an evocative place that breathes the atmosphere and history of the Studios thanks to innovative technological equipment in which four immersive appointments come to life, for an experience that will allow you to listen to soundtracks as you have never done before.

The rich programme of the Roma Film Music Festival also offers four events for three important anniversaries:
