THE CITY WITHOUT JEWS
Presented by Seattle Theatre Group
April 15, 2019 | 7:00 p.m.
The Paramount Theatre | Seattle, Washington
As part of its popular Silent Movie Mondays series, Seattle Theater Group will present a special screening of “Die Stadt ohne Juden,” a recently-remastered 1924 silent film based on a dystopian novel anticipating the rise of Nazism. MOR’s instrumental ensemble will be there to perform the striking new musical score that STF has commissioned from composer Guenter Buchwald, who will also join the MOR ensemble as conductor and performer. (Buchwald, one of the world’s leading advocates of music for the silent cinema, led MOR’s 2008 and 2015 screening of “The Golem” with Betty Olivero’s klezmer-like film score.)
It’s an evening not to be missed.
