The Godfather – Live at the SD Symphony

Convivio is thrilled to help promote this unique event! The Godfather LIVE brings Francis Ford Coppola’s masterpiece film to concert halls for the first time. Winner of three Academy Awards and countless other honors, The Godfather remains one of the greatest films in the history of cinema. Nino Rota’s iconic score (accompanied by the film’s traditional Italian folk music and jazz) is performed live by the San Diego Symphony while the film is simultaneously shown in High Definition on the big screen. An exciting and unique concert experience for music lovers and film-goers alike!

Frankly, I am astounded that Convivio and Bice would put their names on an event that trivialized the achievement that is the “The Godfather” with a “Mafia Costume Party.” As a Sicilian-American whose roots are in Corleone, I wonder why you would help foster a grossly misguided cultural stereotype that has plagued Italian-Americans for generations. Certainly, Italian culture, with its food, wine, fashion and rich musical heritage offered far better themes for celebration. I expected much more from the San Diego Symphony than to dismiss what is perhaps the greatest film ever made as simply another mob movie. I hardly think a Mafia Costume Party falls into the category of an enlightening and inspiring educational and social experiences that Convivio strives to achieve.
