Set to the 1925 MGM Epic Silent Film
With the Virginia Arts Festival Orchestra – Richard Kaufmann, Conductor
Starring Ramon Navarro – Directed by Fred Niblo
Adapted for concert by Stewart Copeland

His innovative grooves have driven the music of seminal rock band The Police to the top of the charts for the better part of two decades—but percussionist Stewart Copeland is also an accomplished composer. He has written for films (including Francis Ford Coppola’s Rumblefish and Oliver Stone’s Wall Street), operas (including The Tell Tale Heart for London’s Royal Opera House), concerts, and ballets. Now, in the Easter weekend World Premiere performance co-commissioned by Virginia Arts Festival, you can hear this groundbreaking American musician perform his new score to a 90 minute edited version of the 1925 MGM silent epic ‘Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ’—performed live with Virginia Arts Festival Orchestra!
