On 16 October 2003, Sergei Prokofiev’s 1938 film score to Sergei Eisenstein’s masterpiece Alexander Nevsky was performed live in concert, with the film, at the Berlin Konzerthaus. Both in its original form accompanying the film’s visual images, and in its adaptation as a concert piece, Alexander Nevsky has become one of Prokofiev’s most popular scores.
