Odessa Opera orchestra on tour in France


On the 19th of September, the orchestra of the Odessa National Opera and Ballet theatre set off on tour in France, where tonight, September 21st, the first show took place.


In the concert show “The World of Hans Zimmer – A Symphonic Celebration”, curated by the world known composer Hans Zimmer himself, the musical hits (newly arranged especially for the show) from such movies as “The Dark Knight”, “Hannibal”, “The Lion King”, “Gladiator”, “The Da Vinci Code”, “Pirates of the Caribbean” and others will be performed live.

The groundbreaking tour, which stars longtime friends and colleagues of Hans Zimmer – the rock star of film score composers – is set to remain in high demand. Hans Zimmer is curator and musical director of the show, and although he isn’t performing himself, he has invited several renowned soloists from his talent factory and circle of friends to take part in the tour.
