Las Vegas Philharmonic Performs to Charlie Chaplin's Classic Film, City Lights at the Smith Center
Tonight at 8:00 p.m., Taras Krysa will make his conducting debut with the Las Vegas Philharmonic leading a performance of the restored score to Charlie Chaplin’s classic film, City Lights. The orchestra will perform on the Reynolds Hall stage with the film screening behind it. Released in 1931, City Lights, subtitled“A Comedy Romance in Pantomime”, is rated by the American Film Association as one of the top 100 films of all time and is widely considered to be Chaplin’s finest film. In City Lights, Chaplin’s beloved Little Tramp character falls in love and helps a blind Flower Girl (played by Virginia Cherrill) to regain her sight. Chaplin not only wrote, directed, produced, and starred in the film, but also wrote most of the music to accompany it. The original music for City Lights was restored by Timothy Brock in 2004 and produced for symphonic presentation. Tickets are priced from $46 to $94 and are available from The Smith Center Box Office, by calling 749-2000 or online at www.lvphil.org.
