Triplets of Belleville
LE TERRIBLE ORCHESTRE DE BELLEVILLE
An incredibly joyous event.
Composer and Conductor BENOÎT CHAREST
In 2003 the animated French feature The Triplets of Belleville swept the globe, raking up dozens of awards and nominations—not to mention the hearts of countless admirers—along the way. Much of it came down to the Oscar-nominated score by Benoît Charest, which grabbed audiences by the ears and dragged them into the streets of 1920s Paris and Le Jazz Hot.
Benoît is back, and in Australia for the first time. With his Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville he recreates live the original score as the film itself is beamed onto the big screen. Saddle up for the misadventures of a kidnapped Tour de France cyclist, his would-be rescuer grandmother and the titular trio of larger-than life divas, all accompanied by the speakeasy-slick sounds of un orchestre sans pareil.
THE BENOÎT CHAREST GROUP AT THE TOFF
THU 13 & SAT 15 OCT
In between performing, Benoît and friends will present two gigs at The Toff in Town, freely traversing late 60s to early 70s psychedelic-afro-funk-jazz and standards from the era.
