Bach+, a partnership between Live Arts Maryland and St. Anne’s, goes live this month with its 2022-23 season. Get your weekend off to an early start with some fantastic musical entertainment at St. Anne’s church on Thursday at 7:00 PM.
First, as we have done for the past 20 years, on October 27th we’ll offer a screening of Lon Chaney’s immortal silent film classic The Phantom of the Opera with an improvised—and not always serious—score, played on St. Anne’s spectacular Freiburger organ. The movie is a 1925 American silent horror film adaptation of Gaston Leroux’s 1910 novel Le Fantôme de l’Opéra, directed by Rupert Julian and starring Lon Chaney, Sr. in the title role of the deformed Phantom who haunts the Paris Opera House, causing murder and mayhem in an attempt to make the woman he loves a star. The movie remains most famous for Chaney’s ghastly, self-devised make-up, which was kept a studio secret until the film’s premiere.
This is a ‘pay what you can’ event and you do not need a ticket. All donations made at the door directly support the artists and programs of Live Arts Maryland.
