Scoring

The Barbra Streisand Scoring Stage is one of the largest motion picture scoring venues in the world. The main scoring area has remained unchanged since the 1930s to preserve the unmatched acoustics and unique ambiance that have impressed generations of filmmakers from around the globe.

An MGM shooting stage until the late twenties, one of its first scoring projects was The Wizard of Oz (1939, Herbert Stothart). Since that auspicious beginning, the stage has been primarily dedicated to the art of film scoring and has produced some of the most famous scores of all time, including Gone with the Wind (1939, Max Steiner); Anchors Aweigh (1945, George Stoll); An American in Paris (1951, Johnny Green and Saul Chaplin); Ben Hur (1959, Miklos Rozsa); Lawrence of Arabia (1962, Maurice Jarre); and Doctor Zhivago (1965, Maurice Jarre).

Recent film soundtracks scored on the stage include Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (Hans Zimmer); Cars (Randy Newman); Monster House (Douglas Pipes); and Snakes on a Plane (Trevor Rabin). Other scores within the last two decades include ET (John Williams); Schindler’s List (John Williams); Toy Story (Randy Newman); Forrest Gump (Alan Silvestri); Spider-Man (Danny Elfman); and Black Hawk Down (Hans Zimmer).

The largest session consisted of a 110 piece orchestra with a 50 person choir for "Amistad."
