DAYTON, OH (October 17, 2011) – The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will present the classic horror film The Bride of Frankenstein (starring Colin Clive, Boris Karloff and Elsa Lanchester) in a special Halloween performance with live orchestra on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 8 p.m. at the Schuster Center. Neal Gittleman, Music Director of the DPO, will conduct.
“The Monster Demands a Mate!” screamed the lurid posters that promoted The Bride of Frankenstein, the sequel to Universal Studios’ original 1931 film, Frankenstein. By the mid-thirties, movie-making had advanced rapidly and The Bride of Frankenstein did not disappoint. Variety magazine acknowledged the important roles of cameraman, art director and score composer Franz Waxman. Audiences may experience the thrills for themselves on Halloween weekend, when the DPO provides the live music to this timeless horror classic in the Mead Theatre at the Schuster Center.
Tickets for The Bride of Frankenstein with orchestra range from $16 – $76 and are available by calling (888) 228-3630 or by ordering on the web at www.daytonphilharmonic.com.
