BiRDMAN LiVEAntonio Sanchez Live Drum Score


November 19, 2016  ·  Zellerbach Theatre  ·  AC Presents


2015 Oscar® Award winner for Best Picture, Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance starred Michael Keaton as a washed-up action star trying to reinvent his career on the Broadway stage. The music, a frenetic heartbeat of drumbeats, is a palpable secondary character propelling the action forward. For this special event, Grammy® Award-winning jazz drummer Antonio Sanchez plays his movie soundtrack live alongside the visually stunning film.
