Tuesday 3 April
£12 - £20
Opulent, extravagant and decadent - an all too rare screening of the 1923 silent film Salomé, complete with live music composed by Charlie Barber.
This classic film is a visual feast furnished by lavish designs inspired by artist Aubrey Beardsley, and an unforgettable title role performance by the flamboyant Hollywood silent film star Alla Nazimova.
Inspired by traditional Arabic ensembles, Charlie Barber’s new score is equally dramatic. Performed by musicians playing from two towers flanking each side of the giant silver screen, this is a riveting blend of music and spectacle unlike anything else.

“[Barber] uses a vast range of instruments … to create an evocative soundscape that mirrors the exotic costumes and Salomé's erotic allure.”
