Bugs Bunny At The Symphony II

When Bugs Bunny on Broadway (aka Bugs Bunny at the Symphony) débuted back in 1990, there was a not-so-subtle irony in having classic Looney Tunes episodes play before the stiff opera house crowds they were made to parody. But then Merrie Melodies animators likely had a clue that their cartoons would serve as so many people’s first (and often only) exposure to classical standards. Such were their influence that even today it’s hard to hear “Figaro’s Aria” without picturing Bugs in a barber’s outfit or “Flight of the Valkyries” without hearing Elmer Fudd singing “Kill the Wabbit!” A 25th anniversary update, Bugs Bunny at the Symphony II finds the Looney Tunes crew with the full backing of the San Antonio Symphony to revisit their most classic(al) moments. Besides Bugs episodes, there’ll be a wide sampling of other symphonically-minded Looney Tunes selections from Daffy Duck, Pepe Le Pew, Tom & Jerry and even a couple of new Warner shorts made specifically for the show.
