Henderson orchestra gives Chaplin film symphonic treatment

The Henderson Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of conductor Taras Krysa, will present Charlie Chaplin’s silent film “The Gold Rush” in a digitally restored print Saturday at the Henderson Pavilion, 200 S. Green Valley Parkway.

Chaplin’s own score will be performed live by the ensemble during the 8 p.m. screening. Tickets are $10.

A 35 mm reel-to-reel projector will be used to present the print, which was obtained from Chaplin’s estate in Paris. The Henderson Symphony Orchestra will synchronize the musical score and sound effects — available only to conductors approved by the Chaplin estate — with the moving images in a 90-minute presentation.

This will be the third time Henderson’s resident orchestra has been permitted to present a Chaplin film this way.

Chaplin not only starred in, but also wrote, produced and directed “The Gold Rush.” This silent classic is a comic fable of fate and perseverance set in the icy wastes of the Alaskan gold fields.
