The sounds and iconic music from the Dragon Ball anime franchise will make their way into a symphonic concert.
The Dragon Ball Symphonic Concert Cdventure will make its official debut premiere in the U.S this upcoming May. Based on music from the long-running anime series, the symphonic concert celebrates all things Dragon Ball. Author Akira Toriyama created the original manga and, due to its popularity, helped create one of anime’s biggest franchises.
The Dragon Ball symphonic concert first made its debut appearance in 2018 in Paris, France. The show was part of the 30th Anniversary Celebration of the series in Europe.

Overlook Events founder Cedric Littardi explained the process of creating and producing this magnificent concert in an announcement. Littardi explained that the concert is a tribute to Toriyama’s saga. Littardi explained that:
“As great enthusiasts of Akira Toriyama’s saga, we spent long months carefully selecting and analyzing each scene to draw out the essence of the Dragon Ball story… Each scene was thoughtfully set to new orchestrations of the classic music to align with our ‘Narrative Symphonic Experience’ concept… We invite you to enjoy every minute of the ‘Dragon Ball Symphonic Adventure’ concert experience.”Overlook Founder Cedric Littardi
