PROGRAM

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!

Verizon Hall

Due to rapidly evolving developments, and in accordance with the City of Philadelphia’s recommendation that all large gatherings be suspended to limit community transmission of COVID-19, all scheduled Philadelphia Orchestra rehearsals, performances, and events through May 10, 2020, are cancelled. Learn more
