The Spaghetti Western Orchestra was an eclectic group of musicians who celebrated the composer Ennio Morricone in a highly theatrical stage performance
This show was as out of the box as it was popular. Five Melbourne musicians, playing hundreds of instruments, recreated onstage both the music as well as the landscape of Ennio Morricone and Sergio Leone’s iconic “Spaghetti Westerns”. Using everything from vibraphones, timpani, double bass and boxes of cornflakes, the performance captured the essence of the films and thrilled audiences throughout Australia and Europe.
Megafun undertook the dramatic lighting design for this performance (including the remarkable moving light on tracks which wound its way through the performance), as well as handling Technical Direction, Production Management and Touring Services.
In addition, Megafun produced the Melbourne season in association with Andrew Guild.
