BUGS BUNNY AT THE SYMPHONY is a fantastic fusion of the world’s most beloved classic Warner. Bros. Looney Tunes projected on the big screen, while their classical music-infused original scores are played live onstage by the Richmond Symphony.  Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner and the rest of the gang cavort onscreen to the exhilarating original music of Carl Stalling and Milt Franklyn, as inspired by Wagner, Rossini, J. Strauss, Liszt, Smetana, von Suppé, Mendelssohn, Ponchielli, and Donizetti. The concert includes iconic classics like What’s Opera, Doc?, The Rabbit of Seville, Baton Bunny, Rhapsody Rabbit, Long-Haired Hare, Corny Concerto, and much more, plus brand new additions Dynamite Dance, Wet Cement, Fur of Flying, Rabid Rider, and Coyote Falls. This critically-acclaimed “cine-concert” has sold out with the world’s greatest orchestras for three decades, and is celebrating with this new 30th Anniversary Edition . . . which also celebrates Bugs Bunny’s 80th Birthday in this concert! Conducted by George Daugherty, and created by George Daugherty & David Ka Lik Wong.
