The Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago, in collaboration with the Logan Center for the Arts and the Film Studies Center at the University of Chicago, are pleased to present the film concert of Tigre Reale (1916), with a live performance by Italian musicians Stefano Maccagno (piano) and Furio Di Castri (double bass).

Tigre Reale, a silent film made by Giovanni Pastrone in 1916, is a poem about the power of love and the destructiveness of memory, the cliche of the femme fatale and the obsession with guilt. Over the troubled love story between the Russian countess Natka and the young diplomat Giorgio La Ferlita, weighs the tragic past of the woman. In the sweetened and rarefied world of a fictional aristocracy, unattainable Dannunzian characters are driven by extreme passions. The film becomes a luxurious stage for the divine Pina Menichelli, who offers here a symbolic interpretation of the excessive and artificial acting that marks and distinguishes some of Italy's silent cinema.

The music score harmoniously combines jazz and a classical inspired musical language offering the audience a musical experience distant but at the same time perfectly matching the film's flow. Stefano Maccagno's piano echoes late romantic and impressionistic influences in combination with an always balanced contemporary touch emphasizing the film's dramatic tension. Furio Di Castri jazz scores wonderfully match all interior sequences while his solo improvisations give the filmic narration an intriguing atmosphere.
