The Story of Ben Hur, Live in Rome

No reviews, be the first!

We travel to Rome to be amazed by a city where at one time audiences of 50,000 filled the Colosseum to watch gladiators live in action, and to see mock sea battles, animal hunts and dramas based on classical mythology.

The city’s turning it on again this year, although these days such a massive spectacular has to be staged in a more modern facility: the Nuova Fiera di Roma. From September 30th until late November, Ben Hur Live will be on stage in Rome. This is the show that took 15 years to develop before it opened in London in late 2009. It will feature music by Steward Copeland who was drummer for The Police.
