The Temptress Feat. Live Score by Ricko Donovan
When: 8 p.m. July 25-26
Where: Logue's Black Raven Emporium

The 1926 romantic epic The Temptress is tale of passion, lust and libido-driven self-destruction. Directed by cinematic pioneer Fred Niblo (The Mark of Zorro and Ben-Hur), and starring Greta Garbo in her second American film, it’s a perfect example of the classic operatic silent melodrama style that has never been fully recaptured by talkies. To reference Norma Desmond, the pictures really did get small.

So what could make it better? How about a live score, written and performed by folk instrumentalist and hammered-dulcimer virtuoso Ricko Donovan? It’s just another example of the cool stuff going on at Nashville’s best cinematic speakeasy. It’s playing both tonight and tomorrow with one show each, so don’t miss your chance for an evening of breast-beating emotion and over-applied mascara.
