Cartoon characters Anna, Elsa, Aladdin, Maleficent, Mickey Mouse and friends will be dancing on ice as part of a spectacular new show to be staged at Belfast’s SSE Arena from Friday November 2 until Sunday November 4.
The Disney on Ice extravaganza will arrive in Belfast as part of a European tour that will allow youngsters to see some of their favourite Disney characters ice-skating their way through a musical spectacular that will revisit a host of Disney films and stories including Frozen, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and Tangled.
You can travel to the kingdom of Arendelle with Anna, Elsa and Olaf in a dramatic retelling of the sisterly love that saved a kingdom; jump into amazing adventures with Aladdin as he seizes his chance to outwit his adversaries in the marketplace of Agrabah; and discover uncharted worlds with Rapunzel and Jasmine.
Battle the villain Maleficent in the form of a fire-breathing dragon alongside Prince Phillip, igniting the ice in a blazing spectacle; dive under the sea with headstrong Ariel as she yearns to explore life above the waves; and find the inner strength that comes from kindness with Belle, Aurora and Cinderella.
Producer Nicole Feld said: “Disney On Ice presents Dream Big was created with the intention to inspire everyone to explore their world by highlighting the defining moments of relatable characters who became their own heroes. “Having both a daughter and son at home, I knew it was important to present a variety of Disney stories as well as show the connection between these stories and illustrate how a journey can unfold in many ways.”
Feld Entertainment regional vice president Steven Armstrong added: “Our greatest wish for our guests is that they will be inspired by these tales of bravery and see that anything is possible if you follow your dreams.
“Many of the stories we’re presenting – like Cinderella and The Little Mermaid – have been around for generations and stand the test of time. Others, like Moana and Frozen, inspire a new generation of young girls through self-reliance and a belief in themselves.”
Audiences will enjoy cutting edge figure-skating, glamorous costumes, stunning set designs, innovative lighting and thrilling special effects as we enter a vivid world of the imagination.
The show will premiere in Glasgow before travelling to Belfast and tickets are now available from Ticketmaster outlets and the SSE Arena box office.
