Warner Bros. Discovery has announced that, on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, “Bugs Bunny at the Symphony” will come to the Auditorium Conciliazione, Rome, following its run in Los Angeles earlier this year.

“Bugs Bunny at the Symphony” will open the second Roma Film Music Festival with a showcase of Looney Tunes. The animated shorts will be projected on the big screen, accompanied by original classical-inspired scores. The Orchestra Italiana del Cinema, conducted by Maestro George Daugherty, will perform the Carl Stalling and Milt Franklyn scores. Maestro Daugherty and David Ka Lik Wong created the concert with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment.

This “cine-concert” has been acclaimed by audiences and critics alike internationally and has sold out for three decades with the world’s greatest orchestras and at the world’s finest concert halls, ranging from The Hollywood Bowl to The New York Philharmonic, The Royal Philharmonic and The Sydney Opera House. The combination of animation and music is now being celebrated with a new 30th-anniversary edition.

“Looney Tunes” and “Merrie Melodies” are one of the studio’s major flagships, originally produced by Warner Bros. to be seen before every Warner Bros. feature film from 1930 to the 1960s, enhancing the immense music catalog at their disposal.
