The potion that’s kept Casablanca ageless since 1942 comes from many magical ingredients. There’s the inherent cool of Humphrey Bogart, for instance, who can throw a punch and deliver a smooch in the same breath, and the smolder of Ingrid Bergman, who melts camera lenses with one purse of her lips. There’s also director Michael Curtiz’s artful vision, the exotic set of the titular nightclub, and the endlessly quotable dialogue. The plot cooks these all together as it unveils the turbulent romance of Bogart’s Rick and Bergman’s Ilsa, an estranged couple who’ll always have Paris, but for now have WWII. However, it’s Max Steiner’s Academy Award–nominated score that ensures Casablanca’s reputation as one of the most romantic films of all time.

Performed in synchronicity with the film by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Casablanca becomes a brand-new moviegoing experience as live musicians transform Steiner’s monophonic score into a stereophonic valentine. In addition to the snuggle-ready centerpiece, “As Time Goes By,” the score raises hairs with rousing anthems such as “La Marseillaise,” menacing motifs, and the sweeping finale that underscores Rick and Ilsa’s iconic final scene. And while the movie has long been available for home viewing, it’s not easy to fit the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in your living room.

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1896, and its reputation was as big as its sound right from the start. Andrew Carnegie was an early backer, and reportedly claimed that it was the best orchestra in the country. More than a century later, it still enjoys its status as a nationally renowned organization. And the PSO continues to take pride in its acclaim—perhaps expanding on Carnegie's earlier view, current Music Director Manfred Honeck called the company "one of the world's finest orchestras."

The long-lived PSO makes its home in an equally historic venue. Converted from an opulent movie palace in 1971, when Americans swore off movies in favor of high culture, Heinz Hall proves itself an exceptional music venue. Fine acoustics please the ears, while eyes take in glittering chandeliers and glints of gold leaf.
