The Nuovo Cinema Italiano Film Festival (NCIFF) and the Charleston Symphony Orchestra (CSO), both classic in their own right, come together this winter for a special collaboration, La Dolce Vita: Music of Italian Cinema.
The performance, which raises funds for NCIFF, takes place at 6 p.m, Thurs. Feb. 22 at the Charleston Music Hall. The night begins with a red carpet cocktail party, where there will be Italian wine, prosecco, and Italian music.
You’re probably already hooked, but it gets even better: There’s a live auction going on throughout the night, and the concert starts at 7:30 p.m, with CSO's Principal Pops Conductor Yuriy Bekker on the podium. And for the visual learners in the audience, the musical performance is accompanied by clips from famous Italian films that will be played on a screen above the symphony, edited together by Neapolitan film editor Mario Crocetta.
“For this special concert, we will perform scores to some well-known movies, including Ennio Morricone’s Cinema Paradiso, The Mission, and Once Upon a Time in the West, Nino Rota’s La Dolce Vita, Amarcord, and Otto e Mezzo, Bacalov’s Il Postino and many others,” Yuriy Bekker said in a press release about the event. “This music is charming, playful, at times nostalgic, but always beautiful.”
Tickets start at $30 and are available online at charlestonmusichall.com; additional details about the event, including a planned raffle, will be available soon on nuovocinemaitaliano.com.
