"The Triplets of Belleville” with Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville with composer Benoît Charest

Kidnapped by mysterious, square-shouldered henchmen, a Tour de France cyclist named Champion is spirited across the ocean to the teeming metropolis of Belleville. His near-sighted  grandmother and faithful dog follow his trail and are taken in by a trio of eccentric jazz-era divas. The motley sleuths follow the clues to an underground speakeasy, where they entertain the crowd and now the chase is on!

This much beloved animated film is screened as composer Benoît Charest leads Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville in the live performance of his orginal score for the film, including his academy award nominated best song. In the spirit of the film, Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville immediatley transports audiences to the exciting streets of 1920’s Paris and Le Jazz Hot.
