There are few romantic movies that can match “Casablanca” for its intensity. It’s the story of Rick, the owner of a night club who finds himself once more embroiled with the woman he had loved and lost. The movie has historic performances by Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid and includes the Oscar nominated musical score with such well known tunes as “It Had to be You”, “Perfidia” and “As Time Goes By”.
On Friday, February 14, 2014 at 8:00 p.m., the Cleveland Orchestra will be presenting “Casablanca” on the giant screen at Severance Hall. During the film the Orchestra will be performing the original film score with William Eddins conducting. Mr. Eddins’ previous engagement with the Cleveland Orchestra was conducting the musical score for Charles Chaplin’s films City Lights and Modern Times.
“Casablanca” at Severance Hall with the Cleveland Orchestra is the ultimate romantic Valentine’s Day experience, pairing a classic film with unforgettable acting and music as well as a story that still stands up even in today’s times. Here’s looking at you, Kid.
