Now everyone’s entertained.
Three stars from Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator” reunited on Wednesday for the charity event “Il Gladiatore In Concerto,” held inside of Rome’s Colosseum. Russell Crowe, Connie Nielsen and Tomas Arana attended the event, which benefitted Rotary’s End Polio Fundraiser and happened to fall one day after the 18th anniversary of the Oscar-winning film’s release.
“Amazing,” Crowe tweeted while listing various co-stars’ names. “What a cast. What an experience.”
At the event, a live orchestra performed Hans Zimmer’s Academy Award-nominated original score. Lisa Gerrard, who co-wrote the “Gladiator” soundtrack, was also on hand to provide vocals for the music. Crowe later shared clips from the performance on Instagram and Twitter.
“Tonight, I will be watching ‘Gladiator’ for the first time since it premiered,” Crowe announced before the film started, per E! News. “For the people of Rome, they have a special connection this film, so watching this screening with them will be an emotional experience for me.”
As Page Six previously reported, Crowe recently curated an auction featuring goods from his marriage and career, including “Gladiator” memorabilia. The chest plate he wore in the film sold for $96,000.
