Last Saturday, August 16th, I attended Disney in Concert in the concert hall of Amsterdam. Perhaps youâ€™ve never heard of it before soâ€™ll explain a bit whatâ€™s it about. Itâ€™s a concert band, in this case the Metropole Orchestra, with 4 singers playing and singing music from Disney animated movies while clips from the films where shown on a big screen.
The show had a duration for 2 hours and where a mix of instrumental music and singing in both English and Dutch. Most of the music was from the 1980s and 1990s classics like Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King and of course Aladdin. While Tangled and Frozen came along as well.
Being a Disney fanatic myself I naturally had a great time hearing especially the music preformed live by a big orchestra. I had a hard time not to sing along and sit still during the show. Iâ€™ve embedded a YouTube clip of the press event and a clip from last yearâ€™s edition.
I hope it returns next year.
