Film musicals are enjoying a huge revival among all generations boosted by extraordinary media enthusiasm. So the Philharmonie de Paris would like to devote a spectacular world-exclusive exhibition to the genre.
This exhibition examines the making of musicals in the USA, Europe and explores variations in other cultures, especially Egypt and India. The exhibition adopts the narrative line of hit musicals such as Broadway Melody (1929), Singin’ in the Rain (1953) or Moulin Rouge (2002), up to La La Land (2016), following all the stages in the production of a musical from the development of the idea to its triumphant performance, via casting, the recording of the music, filming, editing, etc.
The exhibition contains smaller, distinct spaces, where the making of a film musical, from
the development of the idea to its triomphant performance, is detailed in its different phases
(writing, casting, music recording, choregraphy, shooting, dubbing etc.).
