  1. Filmscore to 'Metropolis' - Gottfried Huppertz, arranged by Ben Palmer

Set in a futuristic urban dystopia, Fritz Lang's German Expressionist silent film Metropolis is widely regarded as one of the most entertaining and influential sci-fi movies of all time. Made with an extraordinary budget of five million Reichsmarks, the film was shot over 310 days, with 36,000 extras and 200,000 costumes. Ephraim Katz in The Macmillan International Film Encyclopedia called Metropolis ‘A futuristic, visually completing allegorical look at relations between capital and labor in a Big Brother society ruled by robots, antagonism and fear’. This performance will be the UK première of a new edition of Gottfried Huppertz's richly romantic original 1927 score, arranged and conducted by Ben Palmer, one of the world's leading silent film conductors.
