Described as ‘a magical treat for the eyes and the ears’, Disney shares one of its crown jewels of feature animation showcasing selections from Walt Disney’s original Fantasia and Disney’s Fantasia 2000, featuring a selection of the magnificent repertoire from both films including Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Suite and, performed and screened simultaneously for the first time in the UK, Ponchielli’s Dance of the Hours, the great ballet of hippos, elephants, ostriches and alligators.
Other iconic moments from Disney’s stunning footage, such as Mickey Mouse as he dabbles in magic in Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and the mythical unicorns and winged horses that accompany Beethoven’s ‘Pastoral’ Symphony, will also be shown in high definition on the big screen.
With live underscore by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, conducted by Ludwig Wicki, don’t miss the chance to relive this timeless classic in a unique cinematic experience – the PERFECT Christmas treat for all the family!
Walt Disney once said, ‘Fantasia is timeless. It may run ten, twenty, thirty years. Fantasia is an idea in itself. I can never build another. I can improve. I can elaborate. That is all.’ Disney’s Jonathan Heely, Executive Producer of the programme, added, ‘Now 73 years later, these live performances of Fantasia are a way we can honour Mr Disney’s vision while introducing new patrons young and old to the concert hall with the inspiring sounds of the symphony orchestra.’
