Animated French feature The Triplets of Belleville swept the globe in 2003, garnering dozens of awards and nominations, while capturing the hearts of admirers along the way. Experience a cinema-concert screening of the film with the composer Benoît Charest leading his eight-piece Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville in a live performance of the original score. Much of the joie de vivre of the film came from the Oscar-nominated soundtrack by Charest, which captivated audiences and transported them to the streets of 1920s Paris. Enjoy the misadventures of a kidnapped Tour de France cyclist, his would-be rescuer grandmother, and the titular trio of larger-than-life divas, all accompanied by the speakeasy sounds from a live orchestra. Ride your bike the show and meet up with fellow cyclists!

In conjunction with our presentation of the beloved cycling-themed movie, The Triplets of Belleville, we are hosting a Bike Carnival for Saturday afternoon, November 4, from 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. The event will include bicycle games and an exposition of unusual bikes, safety information, vendors, food, drink, and more. The event is free and open to the public and co-presented with our fellow Hilltop neighbor, Second Cycle.

This film is rated PG-13. This program includes caricatured depictions of people and historic figures that portray racist and sexist cultural stereotypes. We acknowledge the harmful impact of these depictions and encourage broader, ongoing conversations to create a more inclusive future together. The life of Josephine Baker, the complexity of her impact and artistry, its significance historically, and what it means today is a topic that we hope to engage with more deeply in future community programming. Tacoma Arts Live is committed to energizing community through live performance, and sharing stories with themes that reflect the diversity of human experiences.

“…a treat to see [The Triplets of Belleville] with live orchestration”
