Thirty years ago, Andrei Filipov was the conductor of the illustrious Bolshoi orchestra until he was fired for using Jewish musicians. Now he works as a janitor and drinks too much. But when he intercepts an invitation for the Bolshoi to perform in Paris, Andrei masterminds a plan to gather his own Bolshoi to go in their place in order to make a triumphant return to the music scene. With a motley bunch of former musicians at his side, Andrei sets off for Paris to fulfill his destiny and return to his glory as a great conductor. Along the way, he will reunite with a young, beautiful violin virtuoso who holds the key to his past and to his future. Rotten Tomatoes.

The Sacramento Bastille Day Waiters’ Race is inspired by the famous footrace in Paris. This year Sacramento hosts its 7th annual contest in midtown on Sunday, July 10th, and proceeds benefit our Alliance and the Sacramento French Film Festival. There’s also music, free food, and beverages at a variety of booths to guarantee a fun afternoon!
The Alliance booth features the chance to be photographed as Marie Antoinette or Louis XVI, free gifts, free lemonade, a raffle and more.
If you would like to help on our booth, there will be two shifts: 1-4pm and 3:30-6:30pm, to set up and take down the booth, serve lemonade, greet guests and publicize Alliance activities. (We especially need volunteers for the second shift.) If you can join us for one of the shifts, please email us at: email@example.com
This is a great way to connect with other Alliance members, guests and the public at this very enjoyable event.
