Constantine Kitsopoulos, conductor

Jones Hall for the Performing Arts


S’Wonderful! Fall in love with the beauty of Paris and the magic of Gershwin’s music as this 1951 classic film and Academy Award Best Picture winner comes to the big screen at Jones Hall, complete with live soundtrack by the Houston Symphony. Starring Gene Kelly as an American ex-GI who falls for Parisian Leslie Caron, the film weaves its romantic story with George and Ira Gershwin’s most unforgettable, enduring songs—“Embraceable You,” “I Got Rhythm” and many more—alongside jump-off-the-screen dance numbers and plenty of joie de vivre. Who could ask for anything more!
