The Big Deal: Dracula: The Music & Film Performed by Philip Glass And The Philip Glass Ensemble

by Gila Espinoza 23 Oct 2013 8:30 AM

Dracula_450x239It’s hard to recall a film, much less a cinematic classic, without a music score. But that’s the case for the subject of our next Big Deal. Although made as an early talkie, post-The Jazz Singer, the horror film Dracula was produced with no music and few sound effects.

Nearly 70 years later, enter legendary composer Philip Glass. The groundbreaking musician Glass was commissioned by Universal to compose a music score for the 1931 celluloid classic for the re-release to video. Glass and his Philip Glass ensemble will be performing his original music score while the film is projected overhead at Bass Hall on October 29.  For this Big Deal we have two pairs of tickets to giveaway.

Also, don’t forget to check out our other Deals this week. We have festival passes for this year’s Lone Star Film Festival at Sundance Square and tickets to see Swamp Dogg at the Kessler Theater.|
