Conducted by Emmy Award winner George Daugherty and created by Daugherty and Emmy Award winner David Ka Lik Wong, the fan-favorite concert event has toured the world with major symphony orchestras since its 1990 debut first sold-out Broadway’s Gershwin Theatre as Bugs Bunny on Broadway.

The concert first played at Mexico City’s Auditorio Nacional in 1998, followed in 2011 by two historic open-air performances in front of the Palacio de Bellas Artes, which attracted an audience in the tens of thousands.

This latest version of Bugs Bunny at the Symphony pairs 16 brilliant, iconic Looney Tunes shorts projected on the big screen, including What’s Opera, Doc?, The Rabbit of Seville, Baton Bunny, Zoom and Bored, and Corny Concerto -- plus five new animated shorts.

“When we were all growing up and watching Looney Tunes on Saturday morning, we didn’t realize we were also getting a massive lesson in classical music,” said Daugherty. “Bugs Bunny at the Symphony is the perfect opportunity to bring today’s kids to the symphony orchestra and appreciate the beauty of classical music while getting a hilarious twist from Bugs Bunny and his cohorts. More importantly, it’s a chance for adults of all ages to rekindle their affection for these brilliant, animated shorts and relive a truly nostalgic and magical part of their childhoods.”

Warner Bros. Discovery Presents Bugs Bunny at the Symphony is a 130-minute concert with one 20-minute intermission; additional information is available here.
