Silent Film and Live Organ: The Hunchback of Notre Dame
October 31 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM CDT
Guest organist Dorothy Papadakos revives the 1923 classic silent horror film “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” with a completely improvised score played on the Julia Irene Kauffman Casavant Organ and featuring Kansas City Symphony Principal Percussionist Christopher McLaurin improvising on orchestral chimes as Quasimodo. Starring Lon Chaney in the role that launched his career as a major actor and featuring a 19-acre set filled with thousands of extras, “Hunchback” is a visual spectacle on a grand and spooky scale. Please note: the Kansas City Symphony does not perform during this presentation.
