Le Voyage dans la lune [Voyage to the Moon]

Have you seen Scorsese's film Hugo? I went this weekend, and it is absolutely enchanting. The story has a surprising connection to Jacques Offenbach, of can-can fame, by way of Jules Verne. This week, I hope you can join me to hear more of that story and enjoy all sorts of wonderful music.
