A Trip to the Moon
Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre and Nexus Arts
French illusionist and film director Georges Méliès was a pioneer of special effects at the turn of the twentieth century. Astounding, joyous and often surreal, Méliès’ short films revolutionised the early days of cinema through his whimsical approach and development of new techniques.
Following a sold-out premiere performance at the 2018 Adelaide French Festival, join The Zeitgeist Orchestra, innovative drummer Jarrad Payne and jazz violinist Julian Ferraretto as they curate individual musical responses to a selection of Méliès’ films.
Join these talented musicians as they present original compositions that celebrate the spectacular nature of Méliès’ works.
