Why See An American in Paris - Film with Live Orchestra?
A Night Of Old School Hollywood Glamour
Turn back the clocks and take a technicolor trip to the city of love with the Houston Symphony and their live screening of 1951 classic feature film American In Paris. Starring American silver screen heartthrob Gene Kelly and French leading lady Leslie Caron, the rip-roaring romance garnered six out of eight Academy Award nominations for its sumptuous song and dance numbers, Kelly and Caron's sizzling on screen chemistry and of course, a score packed to the rafters with some of George and Ira Gershwin's most iconic music.
Inspired by George's orchestral piece of the same name, An American In Paris chronicles the whirlwind romance between Jerry Mulligan, an American veteran trying to make it as an artist in Paris, and Lise Bouvier, a cultured resident of the city, who, unbeknownst to the aspiring painter, also happens to be the girlfriend of a new acquaintance... Beloved songs like 'I Got Rhythm', 'Embraceable You' and 'S'Wonderful' punctuate an unforgettable musical epic that will forever be one of old school Hollywood's most glamorous and remarkable musicals.
Opening night: 9 November 2018
