One-of-a-kind concert debuts in Chicago
Dragon Ball celebrates 30 years as a franchise and both Funimation and Toei are marking the occasion with a very unique Dragon Ball Symphonic Experience Tour production spearheaded by Overlook Events, which utilizes their proprietary Narrative Symphonic Experience. It mixes a symphony orchestra with rock instruments, live vocals, sound effects and light synchronized to a compilation of Dragon Ball video excerpts projected on giant screens, following a strict narrative. Overlook describes the production further:
“As great enthusiasts of Akira Toriyama's saga, we spent long months carefully selecting and analyzing each scene to draw out the essence of the Dragon Ball story. While reconstructing each arc, each scene was thoughtfully set to new orchestrations of the classic music, to align with our Narrative Symphonic Experience concept. Nothing was left to chance. Now, we invite you to enjoy every minute of this concert experience, from the opening trumpet notes heralding the first transformation of Son Goku, ready to unleash his uncontrollable fury against the mighty Frieza.”
