Buster Keaton's The General

Blue Grassy Knoll

with the Australian Silent Film Orchestra



‘An inspired fusion of cinema and performance that never fails to delight…’

Returning to Melbourne Recital Centre with a brand new score, home-town favourites Blue Grassy Knoll are joined by the Australian Silent Film Orchestra to present one of the greatest silent comedies ever produced, Buster Keaton’s The General, as you’ve never heard it before.

The General has been critically hailed as a comedic masterpiece and is undoubtedly the best train film ever made.

The Civil War adventure-epic was made toward the end of the silent era and is filled with hilarious sight gags and perfectly timed stunt work, all beautifully underscored by Blue Grassy Knoll’s creative sound world of music and effects.
