The Red Violin

December 8, 2017 -
7:30pm to 9:30pm
Memorial Auditorium


Canadian violinist Lara St. John, with the help of members of the Stanford Philharmonia, performs the score at a screening of The Red Violin, an engaging 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?

This film is rated R.
