The Triplets of Belleville Cine-Concert
Benoît Charest, composer-conductor
Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville

In 2003, the animated French feature The Triplets of Belleville swept the globe, racking up dozens of awards and nominations—not to mention the hearts of countless admirers—along the way. Much of it came down to the Oscar-nominated score by Benoît Charest, which grabbed audiences by the ears and dragged them into the streets of 1920s Paris and Le Jazz Hot. Charest is back; with Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville, he recreates live the original score as the film itself is beamed onto the big screen.

  • The Triplets of Belleville was the first PG-13 animated film to be nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Animated Feature category. 
  • Roger Ebert colorfully described the film as “creepy, eccentric, eerie, flaky, freaky, funky, grotesque, inscrutable, kinky, kooky, magical, oddball, spooky, uncanny, uncouth and unearthly.” 
  • Canadian composer Charest started playing guitar at age 13 by learning The Beatles and Led Zeppelin songs by ear.

This concert will run approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
