The stars of Etisalat’s Disney On Ice presents Princesses and Heroes arrived in town this week as preparations begin for the ice extravaganza featuring Disney’s Frozen at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) arena from June 10-13, 2015.
While the cast have been exploring the city, ice engineers at the DWTC have been busy setting the ice and the purpose-built 4000-seat arena. Using two 64,000 kilogram refrigeration units to freeze the water, a magical arena has been created that will take families and friends on an unforgettable journey.
This is the first visit to the United Arab Emirates for many of the 60 cast and crew members of the mesmerizing show, which marks the debut of Frozen, Disney’s Academy Award® winning and number one animated feature film of all time, in Dubai.
Performance director, Rebecca Andison, said:
The cast, crew and staff are very excited to be performing shows in the Middle East and to be sharing some Disney magic with the region! Disney On Ice presents Princesses & Heroes is a beautiful show with elaborate costumes and world-class skaters from all over the globe.”
She also added: “We look forward to experiencing the culture and food, and exploring the cities and surrounding areas we’re in. This will be the first time many in our group have been here and we are excited to see the incredible architecture, arts, museums and desert landscapes that Dubai has to offer.”
Told through artistic skating and acrobatics, dreamers will witness the magic of wishes coming true for eight Disney Princesses; Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Tiana, Jasmine, Aurora and Snow White. The second act will feature royal sisters, Anna and Elsa from Disney’s Frozen.
This collection of celebrated tales is produced by Feld Entertainment, brought to you by Etisalat, organized by Sport & Entertainment Solutions (SES) and supported by Dubai’s Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM). Complemented by award-winning music, stunning choreography and beautiful costumes, the show will deliver a lifetime of memories.
“We are thrilled to welcome Disney’s favourite Princesses and Heroes and the show’s incredible crew,” said Ali Haidary, the Founder and CEO of Sport & Entertainment Solutions (SES). “We can all now look forward to a fun and Frozen-filled couple of weeks in the final lead up to the show.”
“A production of this scale and magnitude takes a long time to pull together, but it is always worth it when we see the look of delight on not just the children’s faces – but the parents’ too – as we bring classic and new stories together in a stunning ice display.”
Sport & Entertainment Solutions announced in April that Disney On Ice presents Princesses and Heroes would be coming to dazzle audiences in the Middle East for the first time.
