The Godfather Live is produced by Cine Concerts.
Justin Freer [Conductor and Producer for “CineConcerts”] about The Godfather Live: “It is with great excitement that we are able to bring this masterful score and film to Moscow again. That we are able to preserve and present some of the most cherished music in the history of our craft is both exhilarating and humbling. There is little film music as instantly recognizable as Nino Rota’s opening music played on trumpet, and only a handful of films as masterfully made as The Godfather. The marriage of these two masterpieces on stage live will be something to remember.”
