Over­ture cut from La La Land re­in­stated for the con­cert tour

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

LOS AN­GE­LES — “La La Land” is get­ting its over­ture back.

An in­stru­men­tal over­ture that was cut from the hit mu­si­cal film star­ring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone will be added back in for a tour­ing con­cert show that be­gins later this month at the Hol­ly­wood Bowl.

The film’s Os­car-win­ning com­poser Justin Hur­witz says the over­ture is one of two new pieces of mu­sic that will be played dur­ing the live shows. It was cut af­ter test screen­ings so the film could open with the ju­bi­lant “An­other Day of Sun,” fea­tur­ing Hamil­ton’s Amanda Balen and dancers atop cars stuck on a Los An­ge­les free­way. The other is a new piece of mu­sic that joins to­gether sev­eral key melodies from the film.

The “La La Land In Con­cert: A Live-toFilm Cel­e­bra­tion” is sched­uled for 50 per­for­mances in the U.S. and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

“La La Land” was nom­i­nated for a his­to­ry­ty­ing 14 Academy Awards and won six Os­cars in Fe­bru­ary.
