The Cleveland Orchestra to Offer CASABLANCA Concert & Showing, 2/14
In a special concert on Valentine's Day, Friday, February 14, at 8:00 p.m., The Cleveland Orchestra presents the romantic cinematic masterpiece Casablanca, shown on a giant screen above the stage in Severance Hall, with the Orchestra performing the film score. The concert is part of the Orchestra's acclaimed Celebrity Series for the 2013-14 season. The Cleveland Orchestra will be conducted by William Eddins, whose previous engagements with the Orchestra have included conducting the musical accompaniments to the Charlie Chaplin films City Lights and Modern Times.
The 1942 American classic film Casablanca tells the dramatic story of a man torn between love and virtue, and features historic performances by Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and Paul Henreid. Max Steiner's Oscar-nominated score includes the well-known ballads "As Time Goes By," "Perfidia," and "It Had to Be You."
