Friday and Saturday: Beasts of the Southern Wild at Symphony Space
This weekend, at Symphony Space, Wordless Music presents a rare encore performance of Beasts of the Southern Wild Live: a full screening with orchestra of writer/director Benh Zeitlin’s extraordinary 2012 debut feature and multiple Oscar nominee. (Anyone who was with us two summers ago at Prospect Park can tell you these shows are not to be missed.) Joining us for these very special performances (for the first time!) will be Louisiana’s own Lost Bayou Ramblers. A handful of remaining tickets are still on sale.

Just announced: Blancanieves (U.S. premiere) at the Winter Garden
In February, as part of John Schaefer’s Silent Films/Live Music series, the Wordless Music Orchestra performs the U.S. premiere of Blancanieves: a live film score and screening of Pablo Berger’s silent black-and-white retelling of the Snow White story, made in 2012. (Also performing in the series is one of our heroes: Jim Jarmusch!) Set in a romantic version of 1920s Andalusia, where Snow White and the dwarves are traveling bullfighters, Blancanieves swept the 2013 Gaudi awards (known as the Spanish Oscars), and is one of the decade’s most popular films in Spain. Composer Alfonso Villalonga joins the Wordless Music Orchestra and conductor Ryan McAdams, along with special guest Julian Koster (Neutral Milk Hotel, The Music Tapes) on musical saw. These performances are free and open to all ages (no tickets or reservations needed).
