Dracula With Philip Glass & the Kronos Quartet
Buy Tickets $39 - $79 $59 - $109
If you prefer to experience your Halloween thrills and chills in musical form, you're in for a treat as modern composer Philip Glass and the Kronos Quartet provide the live accompaniment to a big-screen showing of the 1931 horror classic Dracula, starring none other than Bela Lugosi. Dubbed "one of Glass' most lyrical, moving works" (Billboard), you'll experience the true power of his evocative score when matched with the stunning visuals of Tod Browning's film, shown in its entirety. Glass, who'll perform on piano, composed the work especially for the Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet, the contemporary-classical pioneers who've sold an astonishing 2.5 million recordings, embracing jazz, tango, experimental and world music. Experience the intensity when movie and music merge at the Segerstrom Center.
