A Silly Symphony Celebration: Walt Disney's short films with live music

More than just humorous cartoons: With the "Silly Symphonies", Walt Disney laid an important foundation for his cinematic work between 1929 and 1939. The result was 75 creative short films that won multiple awards with Oscars, whose character drawings, storytelling, camera technology and, above all, the precise use of musical effects continue to shape the art of animation to this day. At the end of the exhibition on the world of sound in Walt Disney's films from July 1, 2020 to January 10, 2021 at the DFF - German Film Institute & Film Museum, the Alte Oper and the DFF will commemorate these early treasures of film art with a “Silly Symphony Celebration” . Some of the pioneering Silly Symphonies are shown - for example "The Skeleton Dance", the first film in the series that combines animation with music. Or "Three Little Pigs", awarded the Oscar for best short film in 1934. "Flowers and Trees" is the first Disney color film, and for "The Old Mill" Disney used a multiplan camera for the first time and created a kind of 3D effect. The Neue Philharmonie Westfalen accompanies the short films live with the respective original pieces of music.

The Skeleton Dance, Flowers and Trees,
Three Little Pigs, The Old Mill, Music Land,
Ugly Duckling and other cartoons from Walt Disney
