The world-renowned Alloy Orchestra returns to The Ross with a new original score accompanying the digitally restored silent film THE SON OF THE SHEIK (1926), starring Vilma Banky and Rudolph Valentino in his final role.

Sponsored by Allstate Lincoln & the Friends of The Ross with support from the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.

There will be a free pre-performance reception (starting at 5:30 p.m.) for members of The Friends of The Ross and employees of Allstate Lincoln. The reception will include food and a cash bar. CLICK HERE to RSVP. By filling out the RSVP form you are submitting a reservation for the RECEPTION ONLY. You will need to purchase tickets to the Alloy performances SEPARATELY.

ALLOY ORCHESTRA is a three man musical ensemble, writing and performing live accompaniment to classic silent films. Working with an outrageous assemblage of peculiar objects, they thrash and grind soulful music from unlikely sources. Performing at prestigious film festivals and cultural centers in the US and abroad, Alloy has helped revive some of the great masterpieces of the silent era.

An unusual combination of found percussion and state-of-the-art electronics gives the Orchestra the ability to create any sound imaginable. Utilizing their famous "rack of junk" and electronic synthesizers, the group generates beautiful music in a spectacular variety of styles. They can conjure up a French symphony or a simple German bar band of the 20's. The group can make the audience think it is being attacked by tigers, contacted by radio signals from Mars or swept up in the Russian Revolution.

$15 Students, Members of Friends of the Ross

THE SON OF THE SHEIK (1926, 68 minutes)
In SON OF THE SHEIK, Valentino plays an unusual dual role, both the Sheik and his son. The son of the sheik and a dancing girl (Vilma Banky ) fall in love, but when he is made to believe she has betrayed him he seeks revenge.

SON OF THE SHEIK was Valentino’s last film. The star died of a sudden infection two weeks before the general release of the film, while he was on a nationwide promotion tour. The film was a huge hit with audiences (grossing a million dollars in the first year) and critics have deemed it the greatest work of the actor’s career.
