LCO perform Fritz Lang’s ‘Metropolis’ at the Roundhouse
Tuesday 3 August 2010
Sunday 10, Monday 11 & Tuesday 12 October 2010, 7pm
Metropolis, the cult 1927 German sci-fi classic has been reconstructed and restored, and will be screened in the Roundhouse’s Main Space with Gottfried Huppertz’s original soundtrack performed live by the LCO.
“With its dizzying depiction of a futuristic cityscape and an alluring female robot, Metropolis is the mother of sci-fi cinema (an influence on Blade Runner and Star Wars, among countless other films). Directed by the legendary Fritz Lang, its jaw-dropping production values, iconic imagery, and modernist grandeur remain as powerful as ever.”
