The silent film screening of “Metropolis,” features an original score played live by the Alloy Orchestra. This 1927 film by Fritz Lang is considered a masterpiece and one of the first in the science-fiction genre. It is set in a glamourous futuristic city which is built on top of a grim undercity of abused and exploited workers. The film stars silent film legends Brigette Helm, Rudolf Klein-Rogge and Gustav Fröhlich.
About Alloy Orchestra
Alloy began their career with a new score for METROPOLIS in 1991. The group has worked with 4 different versions of the film, including this newest “complete” version, released in 2010. Alloy was invited in that year to perform their newest reworking of their score, at the TCM Classic Film Festival’s American premiere of the new restoration. The packed house at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Los Angeles, gave the musicians an enthusiastic standing ovation – a response that has been repeated many times as the group has toured with the magnificent film.
