The Red Violin
Film with live orchestra featuring Lara St. John
Canadian violinist Lara St. John, with the help of a live orchestra featuring members of the Stanford Philharmonia, will perform the score at a screening of The Red Violin, a classic film about an antique instrument made in Cremona, Italy. The story follows this violin’s odyssey from Europe to modern Montreal, tracing its path through four centuries and five countries and bringing ill fortune to all who play it. Can the curse be broken?
