Cine-Concert: Live Music and the Films of Georges Méliès

Right In The Eye, a special evening pairing live music, atmospheric lighting and the pioneering works of filmmaker Georges Méliès (A Trip To The Moon, The Impossible Voyage), visits North American shores for the first time this fall with the 30-performance outing kicking off on October 7 in Notre-Dame-des-Prairies, Quebec.

Drawing its inspiration from the fictional fantasy worlds of The Impossible Voyage, or the burlesque universe of shorts such as The Four Troublesome Heads, the movie-concert Right In The Eye presents a modern rendition of the poetic and playful universe of Georges Méliès. Alcoléa & Cie have painstakingly created an environment that reflects the world of Méliés — using lighting, sound and visuals to create a world shaped by the turn-of-the-century science fiction vignettes.
