An opulent historical drama, Chevalier shares the story of Joseph Bologne, a Black composer and violin virtuoso who was a part of the court of Marie Antoinette. Seeming to surmount racial barriers, Bolonge, who was bestowed with the title of “Chevalier”, ambitiously pursues becoming the next leader of the Paris Opera. His desires for fame, opportunity, love, and equality test him at every turn. As French society faces revolution, he must choose where his true loyalties lie.

“With Oliver Garcia’s exquisite costumes and Karen Murphy’s production design, both brought alive to their full potential by Jess Hall’s stunning cinematography, Chevalier is not just a compelling story, it’s a visually compelling one too.”
“A stirring tribute to a man of many talents, Chevalier gorgeously gives a once-forgotten virtuoso violinist the cinematic treatment.”
The Film Stage
