Met Opera Season

“…a live show that uses a live symphony orchestra to perform music made famous by and in Disney features would seem a natural, which is what Disney’s Symphonic Fantasy is all about.”

On July 6, 1993, the touring theatrical production Disney’s Symphonic Fantasy began its run, opening at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. The production celebrated the music from classic Disney films, and featured 90 musicians from the American Symphony Orchestra, along with a 32-member chorus and 18 dancers. Over 200 Disney characters were represented in the show, with scenes ranging from Fantasia to Aladdin. The production traveled to 22 cities across the United States, working with a new orchestra in each city.
