(NEWARK, NJ) -- The New Jersey Symphony presents the classic film Casablanca with live orchestral accompaniment February 11–13 in Morristown, Newark and New Brunswick. Critics and audiences consider the iconic 1942 romantic film Casablanca—starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henried—one of the greatest films of all time. Roger Ebert wrote that Casablanca’s climax “combines suspense, romance and comedy as they have rarely been brought together on the screen.”
Performances take place February 11 at 8:00pm at Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown, February 12 at 8:00pm at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark and February 13 at 3:00pm at State Theatre New Jersey in New Brunswick. Audience-favorite conductor Constantine Kitsopoulos leads the performances.
Tickets are available online at njsymphony.org or by phone at 1.800.ALLEGRO (255.3476).
All New Jersey Symphony performances follow safety measures in partnership with the venues and based on the guidance provided by the CDC and the State of New Jersey.
The New Jersey Symphony will redefine what it means to be a nationally leading, relevant orchestra in the 21st century. Through adventurous performances, hands-on educational experiences and robust community programming, we encourage everyone to enjoy the power and creativity of orchestral music in all its forms. Across genres and venues, for audiences of all walks of life, we strive to bring music that’s meaningful to you, to you.
As we look toward celebrating our centennial, we are renewing our deeply rooted commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion by championing new, and often local, artists; engaging audiences for whom the inspiring depth and breadth of classical music will be new; and incorporating the broadest possible representation in all aspects of our organization—all to better reflect and serve our vibrant communities.
Our expansive educational offerings—including our youth orchestras, masterclasses and virtual learning opportunities—will build the next generation of listeners and musicians and help students grow, both musically and personally. And we will continue to seek new ways to connect with all New Jerseyans, through programs that resonate with a variety of cultural and musical backgrounds, as well as digital innovations that make our orchestra accessible to anyone, anywhere, anytime.
The New Jersey Symphony’s programs are made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, along with many other foundations, corporations and individual donors
