Sinfonia Gulf Coast presents The Bride of Frankenstein

Special to The Log

Say ‘I Do’ to attending a monstrous cinematic event as darkness falls on Destin and Halloween approaches. Sinfonia Gulf Coast presents The Bride of Frankenstein, a film in concert on Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m.

The event will be staged al fresco in the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation Cultural Arts Village in Destin. 

The Bride of Frankenstein is set for Oct. 22.

“The Bride of Frankenstein has one of the most amazing orchestral scores in film history,” says Sinfonia Gulf Coast Music & Artistic Director Demetrius Fuller. “It's a full orchestra, so we’ll have 65 to 70 musicians on stage in the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation’s Cultural Arts Village al fresco just before Halloween. It will be frighteningly fun.”

The 1931 film is based on Mary Shelley’s iconic novel, which is a sequel to Frankenstein. In the film, Dr. Frankenstein and his monster both turn out to be alive, not killed as previously believed. Dr. Frankenstein wants to get out of the evil-experiment business, but when mad scientist Dr. Pretorius kidnaps his wife, Dr. Frankenstein agrees to help him create a new creature, a woman, to be the companion of the monster.

“It’s a perfect night for mystery and horrors. The air itself is filled with monsters," said Mary Shelley.
