“The work retains its freshness and its potential wonder. It remains bright and adorable, pushed by the winds of a head full madness.” - Le Devoir

Composer and band leader Benoit Charest and the eight-piece ensemble Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville performs live the music and sound effects from the Academy Award-nominated animated film Triplets of Belleville. When her grandson is kidnapped during the Tour de France, Madame Souza and her beloved pooch Bruno team up with the Belleville Sisters—an aged song-and-dance team from the days of Fred Astaire—to rescue him. Charest’s film score and the tour de force band transport the audience to the exciting streets of 1920s France and Le Jazz Hot. The evening is a once-in-a-lifetime music and cinema experience not to be missed. The film is rated PG-13.
