Right In the Eye introduces audiences to the wonderful world of 19th century French illusionist, actor, and filmmaker Georges Méliès. Inspired by his multiple universes, the show combines music and sound compositions, lighting, still images and moving pictures. The performance is the musical brainchild of composer-scenographer Jean-François Alcoléa who has created a magical show where a multi-layered, evocative, and intricate score complements and enhances Méliès silent films. It features a trio of virtuoso musicians performing live as the films are projected and are almost a show in themselves as they conjure music from an extraordinary array of instruments. Right In the Eye adds a whole wealth of timbres, sounds and musical colors to a mesmerizing score and panoply of unexpected sound effects that expertly evoke the technical wizardry, hilarity, and stream of invention bequeathed to cinema by Méliès.
