« The sound of Chaplin »

Designed and produced by the Musée de la musique-Philharmonie de Paris, this exhibition is being presented in Paris until 26 January 2020. Starting in March, it will be housed in the Manoir de Ban at Chaplin’s World, where visitors will have an opportunity to rediscover Chaplin’s fascinating musical and rhythmic work through rare archives, interactive installations and an immersive audiovisual experience with ambitious arrangements. Let the music move you !

Show - from 10 to 26 April


Chaplin’s World and the circus school L’Alchimie will present three daily shows throughout the Easter holiday, transporting you on a dream-like journey, that of Chaplin as he left America for the Manoir de Ban in Corsier-sur-Vevey. Through the magic of music, they will embark on a metaphorical voyage through various tableaux of the Chaplin universe, and discover the nostalgic side to Chaplin as he remembers his musical works (the famous “dance of the bread rolls”, “Smile”) and wonders about the future. All to the sound of a live orchestra!
