DISNEY’S ‘FANTASIA’ LIVE IN CONCERT
Nothing alights the imagination quite like Disney productions, and following last year’s highly successful Disney concert, the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra will this year be performing music from Fantasia.
Disney’s Fantasia: Live in Concert is a performance of this timeless classic with live symphonic masterpieces taken from both Walt Disney’s Fantasia (1940) and Fantasia 2000.
The concert will highlight a selection of these films’ magnificent repertoire, including Tchaikovsky‘s The Nutcracker Suite and Stravinsky’s The Firebird Suite. There will also be stunning footage of Mickey Mouse dabbling with magic in Dukas‘ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and the mythical unicorns and winged horses that accompany Beethoven‘s Pastoral Symphony.
These will all be performed and screened simultaneously for the first time in Malta at the Mediterranean Conference Centre on the 20th February at 3pm and again at 7.30pm under the baton of conductor Brian Schembri.
Through this production, the MPO are once again finding innovative ways to bring culture and classical music closer to our young audience, this time through the use of Disney characters which never fail to capture our imagination.
The concert for children aged 6+. Tickets can be purchased here or from the MCC booking office on 2559 5750.
