Celebrate the most famous animation in the world – and its equally famous music – when Bugs Bunny at the Symphony comes to The Pavilion July 26 at 8:30 p.m. Conducted and created by Emmy Award™ winner George Daugherty, Bugs Bunny at the Symphonyis a celebration of the world's favorite Warner Bros. Looney Tunes characters on-screen with live full symphony orchestra accompaniment.
Bugs Bunny at the Symphonyis the eagerly-anticipated sequel to Bugs Bunny on Broadway, the record-setting orchestra-and-film concert that pioneered a new genre of symphony orchestra entertainment when it debuted on Broadway in 1990. This new version of the concert celebrates the 20-year legacy of Looney Tunes and orchestral music together “in concert.”
Retaining the most indelible moments from the original production, Bugs Bunny at the Symphony includes Chuck Jones’ inspired What’s Opera, Doc? and The Rabbit of Seville, while adding in other Warner Bros. classics like Friz Freleng’s Rhapsody Rabbit, and the virtuoso orchestral roller coaster ride of the Road Runner epic, Zoom and Bored, Baton Bunny, Home Tweet Home, A Concerto, Long-Haired Hare and more.
Bugs Bunny is joined on-screen by his immensely popular cohorts, including Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner, Pepe Le Pew, and many others. New to the concert are special guest appearances by Tom and Jerry In The Hollywood Bowl, and spectacular musical montages starring The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo, and other stars from the world of Warner Bros. and Hanna-Barbera.
