Marin Alsop, conductor
City Lights, the film

Charlie Chaplin not only wrote, directed and starred in the 1931 film City Lights, he composed the musical score to accompany it. And although films at the time were already being produced with sound, Chaplin’s influence and power in Hollywood allowed him to shoot City Lights as a silent film save for a few sound effects and some mock speech. The BSO, under the direction of Music Director Marin Alsop, will perform an updated orchestration of the musical score to City Lights, accompanied by Chaplin’s famous film. Charlie would be so proud.
