Cal Performances presents Eco Ensemble
Foxtrot Delirium: Music by Martin Matalon feat. The Oyster Princess by Ernst Lubitsch
Tickets here


UC Berkeley's adventurous eco ensemble brings the cinematic vision of Ernst Lubitsch to life with the US premiere of Argentine composer Martin Matalon's film score for the director's The Oyster Princess. Lubitsch's 1919 silent comedy of mistaken identities is a saucy satire aimed at the desires and transgressions of the bourgeoisie. Matalon has previously scored silent films by Fritz Lang and Luis Buñuel, and here highlights Lubitsch's fleet dramatic sense and masterful comedic timing, in a score that combines acoustic and electronic sounds. Cal Performances executive and artistic director Matías Tarnopolsky begins the program with an onstage interview of Matalon; following an intermission, the film will be screened to a live performance of the score.
