New Orleans, LA - This fall, in partnership with Court 13 and the New Orleans Film Society, Wordless Music presents their first show in New Orleans and it's shaping up to be a memorable one. On Saturday, October 10, at the historic Saenger Theatre downtown, Wordless Music Orchestra performs a live score with screening to the extraordinary 2012 film BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD. Joining in for this very special performance will be Louisiana's own Lost Bayou Ramblers, along with conductor Ryan McAdams. Tickets are on sale now.
Winner of 75 awards internationally, including top prizes at Sundance and Cannes, BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD was directed by first-time filmmaker Benh Zeitlin, and takes place in a south Louisiana bayou squatters' community called the Bathtub. Starring child actor Quvenzhané Wallis in an unforgettable role that would make her the youngest nominee for Best Actress in Oscar history. To say they are honored to bring this show down to New Orleans would be an understatement. It's hard to improve on Roger Ebert's words: "Sometimes miraculous films come into being, made by people you've never heard of, starring unknown faces, blindsiding you with creative genius."
Tickets for Beasts of the Southern Wild ($24.00 - $64.00) are on sale now at the Saenger Theatre Box Office, ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000. The box office, located at 1111 Canal St., is open Monday through Friday 10am to 5pm. All tickets subject to applicable service charges and fees.
