On Sunday February 4th 2018 we are performing Gottfried Huppertz's score to a live screening of Metropolis, the 1927 Fritz Lang film.

The Metropolis restoration project, which attracted international attention, began in 2008 in Buenos Aires with the surprise discovery of a long-forgotten unique version of the film, including scenes that were previously believed lost. It is these new parts that sets Metropolis apart from the earlier, substantially shorter 1988 and 2001 versions. Against the breath-taking science fiction background, the human element has been given a more prominent role, adding a different slant to the storyline. The music plays a crucial role in the reconstructed montage of the premiere version, the primary source being the original score by Gottfried Huppertz.

Sunday 4 February 2018, 4.00pm, Aylesbury Vale Academy
