Bugs Bunny at the Symphony II

Bugs Bunny at the Symphony II is a spectacular fusion of classical music and classic animation that celebrates the most famous and beloved cartoons in the world – and their equally famous music.

Conducted by Emmy Award winner George Daugherty, and created and produced by Daugherty and Emmy Award winning producer David Ka Lik Wong, Bugs Bunny at the Symphony II is a celebration of the world’s favorite Warner Bros. Looney Tunes characters on-screen with live full symphony orchestra accompaniment.

This production is the second critically-acclaimed sequel to Bugs Bunny on Broadway, the record-setting orchestra-and-film concert that pioneered a whole new genre of symphony orchestra entertainment.

And now comes yet another new version which will delight audiences everywhere. This latest incantation celebrates this show’s 29-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 II 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, Chuck Jones’ Long-Haired Hare, and the virtuoso orchestral roller coaster ride of the Road Runner epic, Zoom and Bored.  Bugs Bunny is joined on-screen by his immensely popular cohorts, including Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner, and many others.  New to the concert are special guest appearances by Tom and Jerry In The Hollywood Bowl, two of the funniest Daffy Duckepics ever made – Show Biz Bugs and Robin Hood Daffy – and a trio of love songs by the world’s most scent-challenged crooner, Pepe Le Pew.

In addition, two spectacular new 3D-CGI Looney Tunes – Rabid Rider and Coyote Falls – round out an evening that has been selling out around the world since it premiered in July, 2013.

Tickets go on sale Monday, April 29 at 11:00am.
