Shimmering with mysterious delights: slithering harmonics from the strings; the bubbling mud of winds and brass.
Classic American musical comedy film Singin' in the Rain starring Gene Kelly was released in 1952. More recently the film came first in the American Film Institute's 100 Years of Musicals list and 5th in its updated list of the greatest American films ever made.
In the beautiful outdoor setting of Kenwood House, the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra conducted by Neil Thomson will bring the film's iconic soundtrack to life while the re-mastered film is shown on the big screen along with the original vocals and dialogue. This unique experience is the perfect way to enjoy one of the greatest musical movies ever made.
