New Disney concert heads to Royal Albert Hall

A new concert set to honour Disney’s Broadway shows is set to take place at London’s Royal Albert Hall later this year.

Various hits from the likes of The Lion King, Tarzan, Beauty and the Beast, Aida, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame will be performed by the London cast of Aladdin and Disney composer Alan Menken.

Lucy Noble, director of events at the Royal Albert Hall, said: “There’s nothing like a Disney stage show to get the audience on its feet, and these incredible musicals have become a part of our culture: riots of colour, dance and song packed with ingenuity, emotion and unique theatrical magic.

“For the first time in Europe, audiences will be able to enjoy all of Disney’s Broadway hits in one incredible concert, in the company of a world-class symphony orchestra and a galaxy of stars, led by the legend, Alan Menken.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the extraordinary music that has made Disney a byword for astonishing entertainment.”

The one-night only event will take place on October 23rd, and booking for the concert opens on July 8th.
