An Iranian theatre ensemble staged a musical adaptation of Tim Burton's 'Corpse Bride' in Tehran's Espinas Palace Hotel on Friday.
Iranian director Omidreza Sepehri and his colourful troupe presented a vibrant rendition of the 2005 gothic stop-motion fantasy, complete with Danny Elfman's original songs and Milad Mahdavi's new compositions.
"It is tough to make something like Tim Burton's pieces which many people have visual memories with," said the musical's Director Omid Reza Sepehri, adding that close to 80 actors and 240 crew members worked on the play.
Iranian conductor Mehdi Norouzi, whose resume includes collaborations with renowned pianist Richard Clayderman, led the performance's live orchestra.
The fantasy drama musical, which sold-out of tickets for its fifteen-night run in just three days, tells the story of Victor, who unwittingly places his engagement ring on a corpse's finger while rehearsing his proposal to Victoria and thus resurrects the 'Corpse Bride'.
