The duo of Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser — collectively known as 2Cellos — will bring their current tour to the Brady Theater.
The tour is in support of the duo’s most recent release, “Score,” on which they collaborate with the London Symphony Orchestra on a collection of themes from films and TV programs.
“We love movie music, and this album represents some of our favorite pieces of music by our favorite film composers,” Hauser stated in a press release about the album. “Having the opportunity to arrange them for cello whilst working with the world-class London Symphony Orchestra has been a dream come true.”
Originally, the concert was to have taken place Nov. 1, but scheduling conflicts forced a postponement.
Since gaining the world’s attention in 2011 with a video of its version of “Smooth Criminal” by Michael Jackson, 2Cellos has gone on to perform with artists ranging from Lang Lang and Andrea Bocelli to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Elton John, who invited them to tour with him.
2Cellos moved easily between the worlds of classical and pop music, as adept at assaying a piece by J. S. Bach or rocking out with its version of AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck.”
Performance: 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 20, at the Brady Theater, 105 W. M.B. Brady St.
Tickets: $37-$62. 918-582-7239, bradytheater.com

Theatre Tulsa continues its run of the Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice musical “Evita,” about the life and death of Eva Peron, the charismatic wife of former Argentine president Juan Peron.
The musical, which began as a concept album in 1976, two years before opening in London’s West End, is considered perhaps the greatest creation by the team of composer Lloyd Webber and lyricist Rice.
It features such classic songs as “Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina” and “Oh, What a Circus,” as it traces Eva Peron’s rise from obscurity to stardom as an actress to becoming the most powerful woman in the country.
Karlena Riggs stars as Evita, with John Orsulak as Juan Peron and Sean Patrick Rooney as Che. Machele Miller Dill directs.
Performances: 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 14, and Jan. 21; 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 18; Friday, Jan. 19; and Saturday, Jan. 20, at the Tulsa PAC, 110 E. Second St.
