Screening of Salomé With Live Music

Charles Bryant's 1923 film of Salomé is to be performed with live musical accompaniment in Newbridge on 8 March.

Charles Bryant’s 1923 silent film version of Oscar Wilde’s Salomé, starring Nazimova, will be screened at the Riverbank Arts Centre in Newbridge, County Kildare, on 8 March at 8pm.

The screening will be accompanied with a live performance of Charlie Barber’s specially written score, which will feature four percussionists performing Arabic-inspired music from ‘two giant alloy towers’ placed on either side of the film screen (see image above). The production originally debuted to acclaim in 2009. Barber is currently composing a score to accompany Epstein’s 1928 film of The Fall of the House of Usher, to be performed by the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Wales in April 2012.

Tickets are €15 and €18, and can be purchased here.

Riverbank Arts Centre is supported by the Arts Council and Kildare County Council.

Salomé is a Sound Affairs production.
