eco ensemble; Foxtrot Delirium: Live silent film score with screening of The Oyster Princess (1919)

Performing Arts - Other | May 6 | 5-7 p.m. |  Zellerbach Playhouse

 Cal Performances

UC Berkeley’s eco ensemble brings the cinematic vision of Ernst Lubitsch to life with the US premiere of Argentine composer Martin Matalon’s film score for the director’s The Oyster
Princess. Lubitsch’s 1919 silent comedy of mistaken identities is a satire aimed at the desires and transgressions of the bourgeoisie. Cal Performances executive and artistic director Matías Tarnopolsky begins the program with an onstage interview of Matalon; following an intermission, the film will be screened to a live performance of the score. In collaboration with the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT).
