Disney’s Fantasia in Concert
The classic movie, which premiered in 1940, gets new life in this live musical rendition.
A magical concert returns to Denver’s symphony in the round, at the Boettcher Concert Hall. Marrying classic music and classic animation, the Disney’s Fantasia in Concert show includes a screening of the movie alongside live renditions of the score; “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” and Beethoven’s “Fifth Symphony,” featured among others.
“Fantasia is timeless. With so many lively and recognizable pieces of music, it’s been a great way to introduce children to symphonic music for decades and decades and we’re excited to bring it back to Boettcher Concert Hall this year,” Nick Dobreff, communications and creative director for the Colorado Symphony, says.
The Hall is specially designed for maximum audio quality, and having four 20-by-12-foot screens arranged in the center means patrons can watch the film and orchestra with the flit of an eye, no head swiveling needed. To sweeten the deal, families can arrive early to pick up coloring sheets and take part in a craft.
