Can’t ‘Let It Go’? Then we have some good news: the world premiere of Frozen in Concert takes place at the Royal Albert Hall next month, as a full orchestra accompanies this beloved winter warmer on the world’s most famous stage.
The Hall was chock-full of little Disney princesses last year as the venue hosted three wildly successful screenings of the Frozen Sing-Along, with special appearances from Anna, Elsa, X Factor star Lauren Platt and a pair of reindeer.
Now the film will be the latest in the Hall’s series of unmissable film-and-live-orchestra events, as it’s screened in full on 29 October, following the likes of Titanic, Back to the Future and Pixar’s enchanting Ratatouille – which will be lighting up the venue the previous day.
Lucy Noble, Director of Events at the Royal Albert Hall, said: “Frozen is simply a phenomenon, but fans have never had the chance to experience anything like this: that joyous slice of Disney escapism screened in the UK’s biggest cinema, complete with a full concert orchestra bringing to life the incredible score – for the first time in forever.
“From ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman?’ to ‘Love Is an Open Door’ and ‘Fixer Upper’, all of these classic numbers will be heard as never before at one of the world’s most iconic venues, as well as that other song, though I can’t remember for the life of me what it’s called…!”
Whatever its name, that other song has now been viewed more than a billion times on YouTube alone, so I’m sure you’ll recognise it when you hear it!
Frozen is the highest-grossing Disney film of all time, having made over $1 billion at the box office, and drew rave reviews from critics and audiences alike, while scooping two Oscars, a BAFTA and a Golden Globe.
The extraordinary accompaniment on Thursday 29 October will come courtesy of the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra conducted by David Firman, complete with a chorus from the Maida Vale Singers – who will, among other things, give voice to the movie’s trolls.
Other upcoming film-and-live-orchestra shows at the Royal Albert Hall include Ratatouille, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Tickets for the two Frozen screenings on Thursday 29 October are expected to sell out quickly – to get yours, log on to www.royalalberthall.com at 9am on Friday 18 September.
