LIVE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA • HUGE HIGH-DEFINITION SCREEN
EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC • FILM & LIVE ORCHESTRA • A GIFT FOR YOUR VALENTINE
Disney shares one of its crown jewels of feature animation with Symphony Silicon Valley, accompanying scenes from Walt Disney's original FANTASIA (1940) and Disney FANTASIA 2000, highlighting a selection of the magnificent repertoire from both films including Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker Suite. Other iconic moments from Disney's stunning footage, such as Mickey Mouse as he dabbles in magic in Dukas' The Sorcerer's Apprentice and the mythical unicorns and winged horses that accompany Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony, will also be shown in high definition on the big screen.
"Fantasia remind[s] us of the emotional storytelling power of classical music and the wide spectrum of beauty and characters that animation can provide. If you have kids that haven't yet experienced the wonder of Fantasia and Fantasia 2000, I would highly recommend introducing them to it in this ideal setting, with the music heard as it was meant to be- live."
"The Disney cartoons of 1940's revolutionary Fantasia played in brilliant, restored, high-definition color alongside clips from Fantasia 2000..."
"All in all, this is a program that should be offered with great regularity, rather than as a special event."
