Turner Classic Movies (TCM) calls Méliès a “cine-magician.” While others have nicknamed him the “Creator of Cinematic Spectacle.”

Right in the Eye — inspired by Méliès multiple universes — combines music and sound composition lighting still images and moving pictures to introduce audiences to a new immersive experience. The show features a trio of skilled musicians performing their instruments live as Méliès films are projected behind them — Enchanting/captivating viewers with a show within a show as the artists conjure music from an extraordinary array of instruments. Right in the Eye adds a wealth of timbres sounds and musical colors to a mesmerizing score along with a collection of unexpected sound effects that expertly evoke the technical wizardry hilarity and stream of invention imparted upon cinema by Méliès.
