Bugs Bunny at the Symphony
This blockbuster concert that has brought joy to millions of concertgoers worldwide, now returns to Toronto! Bugs Bunny at the Symphony, the record setting orchestra and film concert that reinvented a new genre of symphony orchestra concert, is coming to the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts on May 18, 2013 for 1 show! The show is back by popular demand after selling out its performances at the Sony Centre in 2011.
Bugs Bunny at the Symphony features a fusion of on screen Looney Tunes and live symphony orchestra accompaniment, and spotlights some of the original cartoon treasures of Bug Bunny (What’s Opera, Doc?, The Rabbit of Seville, Long-Haired Hare, Rhapsody Rabbit, and Baton Bunny) while adding an enlarged “cast” of Warner Bros.’ animated characters and cartoons to this celebrated melding of classical music and classic animation. Special guests include Tom and Jerry in The Hollywood Bowl, The Flintstones, and Scooby-Doo! Don’t miss these, plus many more favourites! These exhilarating scores are played LIVE by the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, conducted by George Daugherty.
“Music has always been an important part of the beloved Looney Tunes and their appeal to a worldwide fan base," says Karen McTier, Executive Vice President, Domestic Licensing and Worldwide Marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. "Bugs Bunny at the Symphony is a celebration of these wonderful characters and the artistry which they in spire. This global collaboration will be music to the ears of fans everywhere."
It is estimated that the concert has played to audiences of nearly two million people worldwide over the past two decades.
