The Triplets of Belleville Cine-Concert
Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville with Composer Benoit Charest

Presented in partnership with KLRU-TV

Enjoy an evening on the exciting streets of 1930s Paris and Le Jazz Hot with a screening of this much beloved animated film as composer Benoît Charest leads the eight-piece Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville in a live performance of his original score for the film, including the Oscar®-nominated tune “Belleville Rendez-vous.”

Kidnapped by mysterious, square-shouldered henchmen, a Tour de France cyclist named Champion is spirited across the ocean to the teeming metropolis of Belleville. His near-sighted grandmother and faithful dog follow his trail and are taken in by a trio of eccentric jazz-era divas. The motley sleuths follow the clues to an underground speakeasy, where they entertain the crowd. The chase is on!

Runtime: 80 minutes

“Extraordinary!...A bracing blend of silliness and sophistication. It’s comic, touching and a visual knockout.” — Rolling Stone
