Mixing Live and Original, Recorded Music, This Wizard of Oz Concert Is Not to Be Missed

Eighty years after the debut of The Wizard of Oz on the big screen, experience it like never before with the San Antonio Symphony performing the Academy Award-winning soundtrack live with the film. Be whisked away to the Land of Oz to see old friends the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, Dorothy, and her little dog, too. Check it out this Friday at Majestic Theatre, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

In this classic musical fantasy, Judy Garland stars as Dorothy Gale, a young Kansas farm girl who dreams of a land "somewhere over the rainbow." Dorothy's dream comes true when she, her dog, Toto, and her family's house are transported by a tornado to a bright and magical world, unlike anything she has seen before. Unfortunately, she makes an enemy of a wicked witch when the house falls on the hag's sister.

Now, befriended by a scarecrow without a brain, a tin man with no heart and a cowardly lion—and protected by a pair of enchanted ruby slippers—Dorothy sets off along a yellow brick road for the Emerald City to beseech the all-powerful Wizard of Oz for his help to return home.

Winner of Academy Awards for the classic song, "Over The Rainbow" and for "Best Score," the family classic also received an Oscar nomination for "Best Picture." Hearing Judy Garland’s original 1939 studio recordings alongside the rich live performance by the San Antonio Symphony will be a magical experience like nothing before. So, don’t miss this special engagement on Friday evening!

The San Antonio Symphony will present The Wizard of Oz Live on December 13th at 7:30 p.m. at Majestic Theatre. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster and www.majesticempire.com. Please note, all patrons must have a ticket for this event.
