THIS VALENTINE’S DAY: ORCHESTRA HALL SCREENING OF CASABLANCA, WITH DSO PERFORMING SCORE LIVE IN CONCERT
Constantine Kitsopoulos will conduct
Detroit, (Feb. 6. 2017) – The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) will present a Valentine’s Day treat: a screening of the classic 1942 film Casablanca in Orchestra Hall, accompanied by a live concert performance of Max Steiner’s Oscar-nominated score. Constantine Kitsopoulos will conduct.
“Casablanca is one of the great film love stories, but one where the music becomes as much of a pivotal character as Bogart and Bergman,” says concert Producer John Goberman. “With the Detroit Symphony being that musical character, this evening becomes an extraordinary experience, not just a screening, but a performance of a classic that truly celebrates Valentine's Day.”
The one-night-only performance will take place Tuesday, February 14, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. in Orchestra Hall, within Midtown Detroit’s Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center.
A special Valentine’s Day dinner package at the Paradise Lounge is available, and chocolates, champagne, and roses may be purchased in the Atrium.
