INVOKE’S The Adventures of Prince Achmed
Lotte Reiniger’s The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926) is the oldest-surviving full-length animated film telling a story pulled from the famous collection of Middle Eastern folk tales One Thousand and One Nights. Prince Achmed isan adventure-seeking prince who finds, loses, then recovers his beloved. The film is brought to life by multi-string quartet Invoke, providing a score to match the epic tale’s mix of lighthearted and more sinister themes. Known for its playful “not classical…but not not classical” (SiriusXM) style, Invoke’s musical expertise and improvisatory style heighten your journey to another time and place.
