Program Info: Charles Chaplin - City Lights (complete with film)
Well into the “talkie” era in 1931, Charlie Chaplin released his masterpiece City Lights as a silent film and created a jaunty, vaudeville-style score to go along with it. Could Chaplin have imagined a better accompaniment than The Philadelphia Orchestra? The music perfectly underscores the film’s inspired combination of clowning and pathos. Now widely considered one of the greatest films of all time, it’s a silent movie that must be heard!
