Hitchcock at the London Coliseum

North by Northwest
Alfred Hitchcock's film North by Northwest is a classic. And now it is to be done at the London Coliseum, not I hasten to add as a stage work. The film is being shown at the Coliseum on Sunday 27 November 2016 with Bernard Herrmann's score performed live from the pit by the English National Opera Orchestra conducted by Michael Seal, associate conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. 

Hitchcock's film appeared in 1959, starring Cary Grant and Eve Marie Saint, and in fact Saint will be making a personal appearance at the filming and introducing the film. North by Northwest appeared in the middle of a run of classic Hitchcock films with iconic Herrmann scores, being followed by Psycho (1960) and preceded by Vertigo (1958).
