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. There will be 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!
