The silent films of famed French cinematographer Georges Méliès are set to a live score by French musicians Alcoléa & Cie in this charming ciné-concert entitled “Right in the Eye.” The musicians make their Atlanta debut using more than two dozen instruments to create the music and sound effects for 11 of Méliès’ most iconic short films. The production includes an original score, lighting and scenic design.
Méliès, originally an illusionist, became one of cinema’s founding fathers and invented some of movie-making’s first special effects.
“Right in the Eye” is an original creation by Jean-François Alcoléa, based on Georges Méliès cinematographic works. The performance is part of France-Atlanta 2018, an event series put on by the French Consulate General and Georgia Tech.
The October 25 concert will take place at a different venue than the October 21 concert. Please see website for details.
