In challenge 30 I mentioned two of my favourite films, but Gladiator is my favourite of the three. I can pretty much hum the entire soundtrack and I was gutted recently when I found out too late that Royal Albert Hall was once again putting on Gladiator Live in May 2016 (it’s now sold out, boo). I managed to get a last minute single seat in 2014 and it was amazing.
Although I’ve briefly been to northern Italy as a teenager, I’ve never been to Rome. Even though I know the Colosseum is in ruins, and Russell Crowe won’t be there for real, I still want to stand in the Colosseum with my noise-isolating headphones and listen to Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard’s amazing ‘Now we are Free‘.
