The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra will present two live accompaniment presentations of "An American in Paris" on November 25 at the Performing Arts Center in Newark and on November 26 at the State Theatre in New Brunswick. Here is the official description:
"Fall in love with Paris all over again! Watch this 1951
classic film, starring Gene Kelly as a former American GI who falls for
Parisian Leslie Caron, on the big screen while the NJSO plays the score live.
Memorable songs of George and Ira Gershwin—including “Embraceable You,” “Nice
Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm,” “’S Wonderful” and “Our Love is Here
to Stay”—plus captivating dancing from the two charismatic stars will
deliver an unforgettable experience for movie lovers!"
After each performance, conductor Constantine Kitsopoulos will hold a discussion about the art of playing live to a film presentation.
