Every Halloween, the L.A. Opera offers a mash-up of cinematic horror and orchestral music, featuring live renditions of soundtrack scores performed in synch with such films as Get Out (2017), Psycho (1960), and Frankenstein (1931). In cases where the film was released without music, new scores are commissioned.
