Two decades after conceiving Bugs Bunny on Broadway -- an orchestra providing a live musical soundtrack as Warner Bros. cartoons played on the big screen -- George Daugherty reconceived it as Bugs Bunny at the Symphony. The concept is the same, but the focus is a little different: it has broadened beyond the Warner Bros. library of classic cartoons to include other classics such as Tom & Jerry, The Flintstones, and Scooby-Doo. It retains the ever popular What's Opera, Doc? and other highlights of the original as well. This Watertower Music (the label name is supposedly derived from the famous Warner Bros. lot's water tower) release is a recording of the May 2010 Bugs Bunny at the Symphony premiere, with Daugherty conducting the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
