LA Opera Presents

Frankenstein with Live Orchestra

7PM Doors | 8PM Show

It will thrill you. It may shock you. It might even horrify you. We warned you.

We’re back for our hugely popular annual Halloween mash-up of film and opera at the Theatre at Ace Hotel. This time we’ve got the Boris Karloff shocker on the big screen, complete with mad scientist, bumbling henchman and mob of torch-bearing villagers.

This 1931 masterpiece of horror was originally released without a musical score, which inspired composer Michael Shapiro to fill in the void by creating an original new soundtrack. As the classic film plays on the big screen, he’ll conduct his gorgeous and atmospheric score, performed live by the LA Opera Orchestra, making this the ultimate audience experience for a truly iconic film.

The running time is one hour and 11 minutes.

“The audience was riveted to their seats. The power of the live music with the classic film was hypnotic. His score is majestic and flowing when set against the flickering image on the screen, touching during tender moments, harrowing during disturbing ones.
