RED ROGUE: A live orchestra plays the Oscar-winning score of 'The Red Violin' live.

Watch this acclaimed 1998 film while a live orchestra plays its Oscar-winning score live. The movie, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Carlo Cecchi and Sylvia Chang, tells the tale of a mysterious—and perhaps supernatural—red violin. From its birth in 17th century Cremona, to a stint in Vienna, on through to Oxford, and then to communist China, the instrument bounces around the globe as its legend grows. Canadian violinist Lara St. John and members of the Stanford Philharmonia perform the score by John Corigliano, also known for his Altered States score.
