Disney on Ice Skates into Belfast and Dublin
The heroes of classics such as Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast and Frozen are coming to Belfast and Dublin as part of Disney On Ice presents Dream Big this November.
Produced by live family entertainment company Feld Entertainment (Marvel Universe Live, Sesame Street Live), the new show will feature acclaimed figure skaters portraying famous Disney characters, retelling their well-loved tales through the medium of ice-skating. According to the producers, each story is linked by a cast of heroes with a desire to “explore the depths, heights and horizons of their dreams.”
“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,” said Executive Vice President and Producer Nicole Feld in a statement. “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.”
Other Disney films to be transported to the ice as part of the show include Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Maleficent, Moana, Sleeping Beauty and Tangled.
Audiences are promised a night of spectacle. This includes a chance to 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 the amazing adventures with Aladdin as he seizes his chance to outwit his adversaries in the marketplace of Agrabah, discover uncharted worlds with Rapunzel and Jasmine, battle the villainous Maleficent in the form of a fire-breathing dragon alongside Prince Phillip, 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 and determination with Belle, Aurora and Cinderella.
Meanwhile, older audiences are advised to arrive early for a special event to celebrate 90 years of Walt Disney’s “true original,” Mickey Mouse.
“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,” said Feld Entertainment Regional Vice President, Steven Armstrong in a statement. “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.”
Dream Big is said to capture all the magic and adventure of Disney’s immortal tales through ‘cutting edge figure-skating, glamorous costumes and stunning set designs.’ Through state-of-the-art, innovative lighting and thrilling special effects, Feld Entertainment say audiences will be transported to a world of pure imagination, where lovable Disney heroes of every kind will seek to fulfil their dreams.
Meanwhile, the team of expert figure skaters performing high-flying leaps and breath-taking jumps aim to make the experience one families will never forget.
Having wowed audiences across the United States, Dream Big is set to debut in Europe, stopping off at Ireland and Northern Ireland as part of their new tour. The event will take place at the SSE Arena in Belfast first on Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th November 2018.
A week later, the show then arrives at Dublin’s Citywest Hotel Friday 9th to Sunday 11th November 2018. Tickets are on sale nationwide now. They can be booked online via Ticketmaster.
