An instrument of passion. A shocking secret. An extraordinary journey.

Academy Award-winning director François Girard’s 1998 film, The Red Violin, celebrates its 20th anniversary with violinist Joshua Bell performing live with orchestras on a select anniversary tour. The Red Violin follows the intricate history of an antique violin from its creation in 1681 Cremona, Italy, to an auction house in modern-day Montreal where it draws the eye of an expert appraiser (Samuel L. Jackson). Follow the violin’s journey as it travels through five different countries over the course of four centuries, mysteriously impacting all who play it. Performed live with Joshua Bell and the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra, this evening is ultimately about passion, love, art and renewal.
