Spartacus, the legendary gladiator and Roman Empire. The show opens with Spartacus, the legendary gladiator and trumpet fanfare announcing the “Gladiator Entry” followed by “Arena”, a bold, up-tempo woodwind interlude. Next we hear a beautiful ballad representing the love between “Spartacus and Phrygia”. The quiet calm is broken by “Rebellion” as the legions attack with dissonant melodies and thundering percussion. The final section, “I Am Spartacus!”, begins slow and mournful representing the death of Spartacus but builds to a dramatic celebration of the quest for freedom!
