Vertigo Screening with a Live Orchestra | Bard College

Composer Bernard Herrmann wrote the score to seven Alfred Hitchcock films, including such gems as North by Northwest (1959) and Psycho (1960). Their collaboration reached its apex with Vertigo (1958), starring Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak in a dark romantic story of obsession, manipulation, and fear that is quintessential Hitchcock. Vertigo was named the "Greatest Film of All Time" by the British Film Institute's Sight and Sound, and Hermann viewed the score as his best work.

On September 16 and 17, the Bard College Conservatory of Music Orchestra, under the baton of James Bagwell, will perform the haunting score of Vertigo live to a screening of the film at the Fisher Center. The event is a benefit for the Bard College Conservatory of Music. (845) 758-7900; Fishercenter.bard.edu.
