    Animation and Classical Music - 5/14 at AMPAS

    What’s Opera, Doc? – Animation and Classical Music


    When Friday, May 14, at 7:30 p.m.
    Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

    Where Samuel Goldwyn Theater
    8949 Wilshire Blvd.
    Beverly Hills, CA 90211


    The Marc Davis Celebration of Animation


    Hosted by Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino with special guests Oscar-winning animated feature director Pete Docter and Academy Music Branch governor Bruce Broughton.

    “Be vewy quiet… I’m hunting wwabbits!”

    Whether serving as the soundtrack for a comedic story like “The Band Concert” (1935) starring Mickey Mouse, a stylized operatic parody like “What’s Opera, Doc?” (1957) with Bugs Bunny, or the symphonic inspiration for the visual storytelling of “Fantasia” (1940), classical music has had a strong influence on animated films since they were first synchronized with sound.

    Composer Michael Giacchino (“Up,” “Ratatouille”) will serve as a guide through some of the most inspired and memorable uses of classical music in animation, accentuating the ways this music has influenced animated filmmaking. Special guests include Oscar-winning animated feature director Pete Docter (“Up,” “Monsters, Inc.”) and Academy Music Branch governor Bruce Broughton ("Silverado," "The Rescuers Down Under"). Presented in conjunction with the citywide “Ring Festival LA” and the Academy’s Chuck Jones exhibition, the evening will include big-screen presentations of the animated shorts “Music Land,” (1935), “A Corny Concerto” (1943), “The Rabbit of Seville” (1950) and more.


    General Admission – $5
    Academy members and students with a valid ID – $3

    Are you going to one of those super, special secret week-after-opening-night midnight showings or are you a week off...?! May 7th can not arrive soon enough!

    Though it allows you to get pretty close, it is indeed sold out.

    Thanks for the tip, but I have been checking the website. As Coheteboy says, it's still sold out.

    Anyways, if someone DOES have a ticket... I'd love to... well, you know.

    Thanks in advance!

    I've never been to an event like this before. I know doors open at 6:30PM, but should I be getting there earlier?

    You might want to if you want to get the best seat in the house. But you should be fine if as long as you get there before it starts.
