The Royal Albert Hall will host the world premiere of The Godfather Live, a celebration of the crime classic regularly cited as one of the greatest films ever made.
Francis Ford Coppola's timeless masterpiece The Godfather, starring Marlon Brando and Al Pacino and winner of three Academy Awards, will be shown on the big screen whilst Nino Rota's immortal score is performed simultaneously by the Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Justin Freer.
the Godfather, released 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).
In 2008, an Empire magazine vote saw The Godfather named as the greatest film ever made, a distinction also awarded to the film 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."It's the Godfather Live not The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Audience Par-Tic-I-Pation Album. You know the screenplay, your Don Corleone impression is a thing of beauty and a joy forever, but - for God's sake - don't chant the dialogue along with the movie."
