Warner Bros. Presents Gene Kelly: A Life in Music

Part of Classical Season 2020/21

See the golden moments from Kelly’s films and broadcasts with a live musical accompaniment from the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

While most people think of dance when they think of Gene Kelly, music – and, particularly, American popular song – is central to his work.

It influenced him, inspired him, and in many ways, defined him.

Gene Kelly: A Life in Music combines the music of a live symphony orchestra with a screening of clips from some of Kelly’s most iconic films.

They include Singin’ in the Rain, An American in Paris, Brigadoon, Summer Stock, Les Girls, It’s Always Fair Weather, his joyful dance with Jerry the Mouse in Anchors Aweigh, and rarely seen footage from television specials and rare broadcasts.

Written and hosted by Kelly’s wife and biographer, Patricia Ward Kelly, this show offers a fascinating and intimate insight into the Hollywood star, and a truly exceptional live concert experience.
