A live cinema concert featuring films by Georges Méliès, a wizard of early special effects.
Internationally acclaimed artist/composer Jean François Alcolea meets George Méliès’ cinematic magic in a show that combines live music with 12 of Méliès’ pioneering silent films. On stage three virtuoso musicians play some fifty rare and unique instruments, breathing fresh life into the French cinematographer’s timeless works.
An original score was composed for each film, making every piece unique. Using an array of instruments like saucepans, wind chimes, musical saws, and many more, the cinema concert promises a sensory journey that seamlessly weaves together Alcolea’s contemporary artistry with Méliès’ fantastical silent movies from the 1800s.
This cinema concert is a testament to the enduring power of cinema and music to transcend time and mediums. Attendees can expect to be entranced by the seamless integration of Alcolea’s contemporary vision with Méliès’ timeless pioneering cinematic marvels.
