Francesco Lecce-Chong, conductor
The Smith Center
“Here’s looking at you kid.”
A special Valentine’s weekend presentation of one of the cinema’s most iconic love stories, Casablanca, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in their most beloved roles as Rick and Ilsa. This 1942 World War II-era drama directed by Michael Curtiz endures as one of the silver screen's most compelling stories and also features legendary performances by Claude Rains and Peter Lorre.
Spend a romantic Saturday afternoon or evening at Rick's Café Américain with this dynamic new presentation of the timeless classic featuring the full-length film screened with Max Steiner’s lush orchestral score performed live by the Las Vegas Philharmonic from the stage.
Out of all the concert halls in all of the world, we hope you walk into ours. It could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
