In this unique live music and film screening event, TV/movie producer and historian John Goberman premieres his newly compiled score for director Fritz Lang's 1926 silent cinematic masterpiece Metropolis. Both a compelling commentary on the Industrial Revolution and an expressionistic vision of the not-so-distant future, "Metropolis" has continued to inspire and influence filmmakers everywhere. The National Symphony Orchestra will perform music by composers from the silent film period—including selections from Arnold Schoenberg, Edward Grieg and Bela Bartok.
Please note, there will be no late seating. No one will be allowed in the Concert Hall once the performance begins—please arrive early.
