Film with Live Music: Charlie Chaplin's The Kid
Manchester Camerata conducted by Ben Palmer - Snape Maltings Concert Hall
Program Info: Charles Chaplin - The Kid
Enjoy one of the greatest films of the silent era, with Chaplin's own musical score brought to life by the acclaimed Manchester Camerata.
Widely considered one of the greatest films of the silent era, The Kid is a 1921 silent comedy-drama film written, produced, directed, and starring Charlie Chaplin. The opening title “A comedy with a smile–and perhaps a tear”, sums up its perfect blend of laughs and pathos.
The story begins as a young mother abandons her new-born baby with nothing but a note in his basket. The Tramp (played by Chaplin) inadvertently finds the child and takes him under his wing. The Tramp and the Kid, partners in crime (literally!), develop an irreplaceable bond. Five years pass and the Kid’s mother reappears on the scene, putting the pair’s relationship in jeopardy.
The 16-piece Manchester Camerata orchestra brings to life this all-time classic with an emotive musical score written by Chaplin himself.
