I'm not a big opera fan, but reviews of the Maestro's work always refer to how operatic his films are.  I'm assuming they are talking about the slow build up of tension and then the big release, which is equivalent of an aria.  Then each player has his own theme music, which I guess is the equivalent of a leitmotiv or something.  The larger than life emotions and big climaxes.  Any of you film students gone down this path?   Morricone had some classical training I imagine, are any particular composers like Verdi  obvious influences on his style?

And what if your hand should shake a little?  And that Gringo so fast on the draw.
