    Special Event Day – Concert 5 – Film with Live Music

    21st Century Orchestra | Ludwig Wicki

    Ludwig Wicki  conductor
    Charlie Chaplin
    The Kid
    silent film 1921
    screenplay, direction, and music by Charlie Chaplin

    The tramp Charlie finds an abandoned baby next to the trash cans, with a note on which the suicidal mother asks whoever finds it to care for “the orphan.” Charlie takes the child with him, gives him the name John, and brings him up, though under adverse conditions, in poorhouses and emergency shelters. Until five years later, when the mother unexpectedly shows up, who in the meantime has become a celebrated opera star and has moreover committed herself to charitable goals … The Kid, filmed in 1921, was Chaplin’s first feature film and much more than a comedy. His own childhood, which he spent as the son of a mentally ill mother in the London slums, played an important role when he wrote the screenplay. But Chaplin was not only the author, director, and lead actor of this legendary movie: he also composed its music, which will be performed live on the Special Event Day by the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra under Ludwig Wicki in the KKL Luzern, in front of the giant screen. An unforgettable experience for the eyes, ears, and soul.
