Diablo Ballet and The Lafayette Library & Learning Center bring back the popular, summer Dance on Film series beginning Thursday, June 6th 6:30 PM, with the 1954 musical movie classic Brigadoon.
For information, visit www.DiabloBallet.org or call the Lafayette Library at 925-283-6513.
From the era of MGM’s classic film musicals comes Brigadoon, starring Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse. Lerner and Loewe’s legendary Broadway musical tells the story of two American tourists who stumble upon an enchanted Scottish village that comes alive every 100 years. The score features such classics as “The Heather on the Hill,” ”I’ll Go Home with Bonnie Jean,” and ”Almost Like Being in Love.”
Before the screening, Lauren Jonas, Diablo Ballet’s Artistic Director, and film critic Beau Behan will share fascinating facts about the making of the film. Behan has been featured on NBC Bay Area, NBC News and Boston Globe, and can be seen on the TV show, Beau’s Flicks & Nix, every Friday at 6PM on the Comcast Hometown Network, CHN 104.
Dance on Film celebrates some of the finest examples of dance captured in popular movies. The series debuted last year to sold-out screenings and enthusiastic audiences.
Admission is $5 for all ages. Everyone is invited to enter a free drawing to win tickets to attend a future Diablo Ballet performance.
The Dance on Film series continues all summer with additional screenings:
