In partnership with Marcus Theatres Corporation and Fox Searchlight Pictures, the MSO presents a free movie screening of Chevalier – a thrilling look at the untold life of 18th century French composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-George, whose groundbreaking legacy was nearly erased from history due to the color of his skin. Featuring lavish period sets, vibrant costumes, sweeping romance, and spectacular music, audiences will be inspired by the legend of this real historical figure who stood up to the French aristocracy, defied their rules, and blazed his own path.
This general admission event is open to the public but requires reserving tickets through mso.org.
