About the event
Featuring the world’s greatest classical music, a series of multi-coloured, kaleidoscopic and theatrical installations will bring the world of Disney Fantasia to life. The brand new immersive experience celebrates an iconic moment in the history of Mickey Mouse ahead of his 90th anniversary.
Audience members are invited to step inside The Vaults maze of tunnels in Waterloo, London, where, wearing individual headphones, the orchestra will guide them on an interactive journey. Each space will reveal a fantastical environment using a combination of cutting edge binaural sound, 3D projections, elaborate set designs and dazzling lighting effects to reimagine the many worlds of Disney Fantasia. Under the musical direction of Stephen Higgins, a 96-piece orchestra has created a new recording especially for the experience, featuring classical pieces of music from the original film including The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, The Rite of Spring, Night on Bald Mountain and Nutcracker Suite.
Sounds and Sorcery celebrating Disney FANTASIA is directed by Daisy Evans, the founder and Artistic Director of Silent Opera whose work focuses on the use of headphones to bring classical music to new audiences. Design for the production has been created by Kitty Callister in collaboration with a variety of artists who have created the installations including David Gregory Sound Designer, Doug Foster Video Designer, Jake Wiltshire Lighting Designer and Andy George Production Manager.
