La Monnaie de Paris strikes the spirits for the reopening! As the capital awakens, "Paris qui dort", René Clair's astonishing fiction film, will be screened in the shadow of the neo-classical courtyards, while the famous composer Karol Beffa improvises on the piano. Attend this film-concert on July 21 and take the opportunity to visit the Monnaie de Paris on the date of your choice with your CultureSecrets pass.
"Paris qui dort" tells the story of a guard at the Eiffel Tower who discovers one morning that Paris is silent and paralyzed... nothing is moving, Paris has not woken up. Only five people have escaped the spell and are walking around the sleeping city. A totally innovative work for its time, the 64-minute black-and-white film won the favor of the public and the critics when it was released in 1925.
Composer Karol Beffa will improvise on the piano during the screening. A lecturer in musicology at the ENS, Karol Beffa is the recipient of numerous awards, but above all he is the author of nearly one hundred works, including a dozen film scores and stage music!
