Bugs Bunny on Broadway!

Whats Up, Doc?!

The VSO presents Bugs Bunny on Broadway!

Vancouver BC The Wascally Wabbit is back! The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and Global ComedyFest are proud to present Bugs Bunny on Broadway a unique and extraordinary concert experience that celebrates the worlds favourite classic Looney Tunes cartoons and their real classical scores.

The large video screen show cartoon jewels like Whats Opera, Doc?, The Rabbit of Seville, Long Haired Hare and a Corny Concerto while the Orchestra plays the classical soundtracks on stage. This roller coaster ride of a concert has sold-out the worlds greatest concert halls from The Hollywood Bowl to the Sydney Opera House (and in the past, the Orpheum and Queen Elizabeth Theatre!) and created an enthusiastically-devoted international audience of animation fans and classical music lovers alike.

Bugs conductor and co-creator George Daugherty takes the podium with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra for this extra-special concert event. During the show, Daugherty explains how the genius of Chuck Jones and Warner Bros. took real classical and operatic scores, such as Rossinis Barber of Seville and Wagners Ring Cycle, and set not only Bugs Bunny cartoons to this great classical music, but many others as well. Its an eye-opening experience for audiences to learn that as they were growing up watching the hilarious antics of Bugs and friends, they were also listening to classical music!

Bugs Bunny on Broadway is a uniquely spirited, fun, and sophisticated combination of classic animation and spectacular symphonic music. George Daugherty and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra will perform three concerts from December 28 to December 29 at the Orpheum Theatre.

Tickets for Bugs Bunny on Broadway go on-sale Wednesday, October 1st at 10am, exclusively through the VSO website at, and VSO Customer Service at 604.876.3434.
