THE TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE
Friday, March 4, 2016 - 8pm
Featuring THE TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE
A film by Sylvain Chomet
LE TERRIBLE ORCHESTRE DE BELLEVILLE
with composer Benoît Charest
Friday, March 4, 2016 - 8pm
The Triplets of Belleville tells the story of a Tour de France cyclist who is kidnapped by mysterious, square-shouldered henchmen and spirited across the ocean to the teeming metropolis of Belleville. But the true star of the animated film is the hot jazz score written by Canadian composer Benoît Charest. This screening of the beloved French film features Charest leading Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville in a live performance of the original score, transporting audiences into the streets of 1920s Paris and Le Jazz Hot.
