On October 26, 2023, Red Bull and Hip Hop producer Metro Boomin made history in Los Angeles with Red Bull Symphonic, a one-night concert event where the producer’s biggest hits were reimagined by a full symphony orchestra. Red Bull now invites audiences to explore the making of this landmark moment in music with an exclusive documentary.

Held at the Dolby Theater on Hollywood Boulevard, the sold-out Red Bull Symphonic delivered a unique celebration of music and community through a fusion of Hip Hop and classical music.

The documentary takes viewers behind the scenes with Maestro Anthony Parnther (known for Encanto, Star Wars: The Mandalorian, Creed II, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever), Music Director Laura Escudé, members of the Symphonic Orchestra, and Metro Boomin himself. It showcases the creative collaborations, innovation, and passion that made this extraordinary event possible.

Red Bull Symphonic delivers an unprecedented collaboration between a modern-style artist and a classical music director together with a full-scale symphonic orchestra. The repertoire from the modern-style artist gets a symphonic rearrangement and the collaboration comes to life in a one-night-only, spectacular performance at a unique and prestigious venue. Red Bull Symphonic had its U.S. debut in 2022 featuring rap icon Rick Ross alongside Orchestra Noir in a grand celebration of Black excellence in Atlanta. For over two decades, Red Bull has supported artists and local communities worldwide through live events, workshops, and artist collaborations, with Red Bull Symphonic adding to a successful history of events in Los Angeles (including Red Bull Culture Clash 2022 and Red Bull Batalla).
