Ben Hur has been the benchmark saying for BIG since it’s inception – the tradition continues…

BEN HUR – The Stadium Spectacular – The biggest theatrical event ever seen in Australia

“Ben Hur sets the stadium alight” – Pelerin, France “Biblical in scale” – London Daily Mail “An event not to be missed” – Le Parisien

Direct from Europe, BEN HUR – The Stadium Spectacular, a world tour premiere, will perform exclusively in Sydney at ANZ Stadium for two nights only on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 October, 2010.

BEN HUR brings to life the classic tale made famous by the eleven time Academy Award winning 1959 Hollywood movie “Ben Hur” starring Charlton Heston.  BEN HUR combines the scale of the Sydney Olympic Games Opening Ceremony with the drama of the galley slave who dared defy the powerful Roman Empire.

This monumental $15 million stadium adaptation has been crafted by renowned French director Robert Hossein and produced by STADEFRANCE Live Events.  The performance features a live chariot race with 32 horses, a giant Roman Galleon, a parade of Roman legionnaires and a 15,000 square metre specially constructed arena that will transform ANZ Stadium into the biggest Roman Amphitheatre ever seen.

BEN HUR’s first stadium performance was in 2006 at the Stade de France, Paris where the spectacular event played to over 300,000 people.  The production, with its cast of 225, its horses, its amazing scenic elements and its added attraction of mass audience participation for young and old alike received overwhelming critical acclaim.

BEN HUR – The Stadium Spectacular was adapted from the 1880 novel “BEN HUR: A Tale of the Christ” by American author and Civil War General Lew Wallace.  The enduring story which tells of the slave Ben Hur, and his triumphs over his Roman persecutors, has inspired two epic movies (both a colour and black and white) and even a musical on Broadway.

The Stadium Spectacular is created by legendary French director Robert Hossein.  No stranger to large-scale productions, Hossein’s BEN HUR is theatre unlike anything playing in the world today.  Particularly known for his giant shows and historic stagings, Robert Hossein notched up a Guinness Book record entry in 1983-84 when 700,000 people saw his show “A Man Named Jesus”.

Australian audiences can register their interest at the official tour website.  Those registered will receive BEN HUR – The Stadium Spectacular tour news and a priority period to purchase tickets before public sales.

BEN HUR promises to be an outstanding and unforgettable performance not to be missed.  BEN HUR is the must-see major event of 2010.
