“Hollywood in Vienna”, the symphonic gala concert celebrating classic and contemporary master-pieces of film music, combines an orchestral concert of highest musical level with guests from the dream factory and a Hollywood-like staging in the historical setting of the Vienna Concert Hall. In this edition, it deals with the very special friendship between Hollywood and the world of fairy tales leading the audience into the land of mythical creatures.
Beauty Belle is allowed to realize that an enchanted prince may be hiding behind the fearsome Beast. Peering behind mysterious doors, a legendary parallel universe is explored in The Chronicles of Narnia. The ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester and conductor John Mauceri accompany the brave Mulan on her adventurous journey through medieval China. In Finding Neverland, they look over the shoulder of the author of Peter Pan. The musical programme further features the story of the shipwrecked Pi and a Bengal tiger in Life of Pi, before it finally pays homage to Simba, the Lion King.
At each “Hollywood in Vienna” concert gala the “Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award” is presented by the City of Vienna to one of the world’s most renowned film music composers – this year’s winner is a composer of countless fantastically bizarre screen fables: Danny Elfman, nominated for four Oscars and congenial partner of director Tim Burton. He added his unmistakably powerful sound fantasies to Edward Scissorhands, Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Batman, and also to the movie about America’s yellow cult family The Simpsons.
