LA Opera Presents
The Bride of Frankenstein with Live Orchestra
7PM Doors | 8PM Show
Camp, humor and horror collide in one of the greatest sequels ever.
Break out the hairspray and spend Halloween with Elsa Lanchester and Boris Karloff! This year, our hugely popular annual celebration of horror and live music at the breathtaking Theatre at Ace Hotel presents film director James Whale’s chilling The Bride of Frankenstein, with one of the most iconic “wedding” scenes in cinematic history.
As this 1935 horror classic plays out larger than life on the silver screen, the magnificent musicians of the LA Opera Orchestra, conducted by Jenny Wong, perform Franz Waxman’s groundbreaking original soundtrack score live. It’s the ultimate cinematic experience!
The running time is one hour and 15 minutes.
Off Grand productions are supported by a consortium of generous donors to LA Opera’s Contemporary Opera Initiative, chaired by Barry and Nancy Sanders.
“Waxman’s superb seminal score for The Bride of Frankenstein is as iconic as the movie itself… What sets his effort here apart was his success, his brilliance in speaking to the complex elements of the film’s narrative; the horror, the grotesque, the sinister and the comedic. That he was able to succeed on all counts reveals genius.”
