To Celebrate Diá de los Muertos, Pixar’s Coco will be brought to life on stage for the first time ever this fall at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles for one weekend only – Friday, November 8th and Saturday, November 9th.
As the beloved film plays on the Bowl’s movie screen, it will be accompanied by a full, live orchestra, and state-of-the-art digital projection imagery on the shell of the iconic Hollywood Bowl.
Conductor Sarah Hicks will lead the orchestra performing Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino’s original score, along with special guests performing the film’s songs including Academy Award-winner for Original Song “Remember Me,” as well as “Un Poco Loco,” “The World Es Mi Familia,” and many more.
This spectacular event will include an all-star lineup of special guests including Benjamin Bratt, Eva Longoria, Carlos Rivera, Miguel, Alanna Ubach, Alex Gonzalez, Jaime Camil, Lele Pons, Rudy Mancuso and Natalia Jimenez who will appear throughout the evening.
Coco Live in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl will transform the legendary venue into the Land of the Dead with special pre-show activities. Mariachi Divas will also entertain the audience with traditional Mariachi music throughout the night.
Day of the Dead costumes are encouraged.
Felipe Fernandez del Paso serves as director of Coco Live in Concert. Fernandez del Paso received an Oscar nomination for Best Production Design for the 2003 film, “Frida.”
The concert is produced by Disney Concerts and Live Nation/Andrew Hewitt & Bill Silva Presents. They have previously teamed together for several highly acclaimed live to film events at the Hollywood Bowl, including Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in Concert starring Zooey Deschanel and Kelsey Grammer, as well as Disney’s The Little Mermaid starring Lea Michele and Harvey Fierstein.
Tickets start at $37.50, and are available at HollywoodBowl.com and Ticketmaster.
