Warner Bros. presents “Bugs Bunny at the Symphony II”
October 24, 2015 @ 8:00 pm
BUGS BUNNY AT THE SYMPHONY II celebrates the world’s favorite classic Looney Tunes, projected on the big screen, while the Austin Symphony Orchestra performs their exhilarating, original Carl Stalling scores LIVE! Acclaimed as the master of animation music, Stalling’s soundscapes take audiences on a roller coaster ride of rhythm, melody, and harmony, inspired by the great works of Wagner, Rossini, Johann Strauss, von Suppe, Liszt, and other great composers. Conducted by George Daugherty and created by Daugherty and David Ka Lik Wong, Bugs Bunny at the Symphony II spotlights such iconic classics as What’s Opera, Doc?, The Rabbit of Seville, Rhapsody Rabbit, Long-Haired Hare, Show Biz Bugs, Baton Bunny, Duck Amuck, and many others…plus two brand-new, critically-acclaimed 3D Looney Tunes from Warner Bros.—Rabid Rider and Coyote Falls. And capping it all off are special guest appearances by Tom & Jerry in the Hollywood Bowl.
“Ever wonder what Saturday mornings in heaven might be like? Maybe we’ll all stroll excitedly up the street to a grand auditorium built by brilliantly gifted architects where we can blissfully enjoy amusing cartoons displaying on a huge screen overhead while a real, live orchestra consisting of a multitude of talented classical musicians enchants our souls with all the beloved music and theme songs that have over the years become such an integral part of our personal and collective fiber. Well, no need to wait until the afterlife; we can experience a little bit of heaven right here on earth in George Daugherty’s utterly delightful concert Bugs Bunny at the Symphony. You can almost throw your stuffy, symphony ‘quiet’ rules out the window during this program (in part because you would never want to squelch the precious squeals of laughter coming from youngsters sprinkled throughout the audience). This show is excellent for all ages, and is an utterly delightful way to introduce anyone to the symphony!” The Flash List / Dallas Morning News.
