THE WIZARD OF OZ - FILM WITH ORCHESTRA
A Fox Theater Film Series Screening
Richard Kaufman, conductor
An enduring 1939 classic about DOROTHY™ (the immortal Judy Garland) and her adventures in the LAND OF OZ™, as she tries to find her way home to Kansas gets the Fox Theatre treatment. DOROTHY™ and her friends, the SCARECROW™, TIN MAN™, the COWARDLY LION™ and her little dog TOTO™ do battle with the WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST™ as the San Diego Symphony performs the tuneful score by Harold Arlen and Herbert Stothart.
The Wizard of Oz was a technical marvel for the MGM studio in the late 1930s. Today, MGM has stunningly re-mastered this timeless classic. The brilliantly restored images are accompanied by full symphony orchestra playing entirely new transcriptions of Harold Arlen’s brilliant lost scores. Hearing Judy Garland’s original 1939 studio recordings, backed by lush, live orchestration, will transport children and adults alike. With this version of The Wizard of Oz on the big screen, moviegoers will be treated to the Oscar®-winning film as it has never been seen before.
