The Candlelight series continues to illuminate NYC, but this time, with a bit of a nostalgic twist. Experience the magic of listening to iconic and beloved music from some of the most popular anime franchises. Naruto, Sailor Moon, and Dragon Ball are just some of the timeless classics that will be highlighted, so if you’re a fan, you won’t want to miss the chance to listen to these tracks at two beautiful venues.
Taking place at The Opera House and St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, these Candlelight tributes to anime music are set to be enchanting performances. Sit back and relax surrounded by breathtaking architecture bathed in the glow of hundreds of flickering candles.
Anime fans are familiar with the dramatic melodies accompanying iconic anime series. The music is multi-layered and, in the space of about 90 seconds, manages to capture the essence of the episode. Series such as Tokyo Ghoul and Naruto handle important themes and depict complex characters, as a result their opening theme songs are there to represent the overall feeling of specific story arcs.
The Candlelight series is recreating the magic of these memorable songs on strings at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church and The Opera House. You can expect to be spellbound by renditions of music from the likes of Attack on Titan, Dragon Ball, and covers of iconic compositions by Joe Hisaishi. At each venue, you can catch either the 6:30pm show or the 9pm show, and doors open 30 minutes prior to the start of the performances.
Get to know your favorite anime theme songs in a new light at an intimate Candlelight concert in NYC. Performances last between sixty and sixty-five minutes so that’s an hour or so to unwind, sit back, and allow yourself to be swept away by these nostalgic tracks played by a talented and local string ensemble.
Choose a performance that suits your schedule best, and you can make a night of it by booking a pre or post-show dinner!
Note that for the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
