Live movie-concert based on the cinematographic works of Georges Méliès

Right in the Eye

Through 12 films, Jean-François Alcoléa offers a very unique and modern rendition of the poetic and playful universe of George Méliès by aptly serving both its images and its narrative. He draws its inspiration from the fictional fantasy worlds of such featurettes as “Le voyage à travers l’impossible” (The Impossible Voyage), or the burlesque universe of shorts such as “L’équilibre impossible” (An Impossible Balancing Feat).

After a successful run of 500 performances, our movie-concert is available to tour abroad.

Right in the Eye has toured :
France / Belgium / Luxembourg / Morocco / Romania / Canada / USA / United Kingdom

« Thank you for giving us a wonderful and unique evening by listening to your wonderful and refreshing music at the Coral Gables Art Cinema during the screening of Georges Méliès’ films. What a talent you and your musicians have that has brought me a lot of pleasure and new sensations! Thank you very much »

«  Absolutely brilliant composing and musicianship by three extremely talented musicians. The films were charming but the music was the star of the show. Don't miss this one! »
