TEHRAN – Iranian director Omidreza Sepehri and his troupe plan to stage a musical adaptation of American director Tim Burton’s 2005 animation “Corpse Bride” at Tehran’s Espinas Palace Hotel during May. 

Composer Milad Mahdavi and the Istgah Orchestra under the direction of conductor Mehdi Noruzi will be collaborating on the project, a public relations team announced on Tuesday. 

“Corpse Bride” tells the story of Victor and Victoria, who are preparing for their arranged marriage. When Victor practices his wedding vows in the inadvertent presence of a deceased young woman, she rises from the grave assuming he has married her.

The film was nominated for the 78th Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature.
