Mickey mouse and friends wow audiences in Dubai
The curtain for the highly anticipated stage show Disney Live! presents Mickey’s Music Festival was raised yesterday (Wednesday) as hundreds of families from across the UAE were wowed by their favourite Disney characters.
After months of preparation and anticipation, an all-star line-up of more than 25 Disney characters including the fab four Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy took theatre-goers down memory lane, performing some of Disney’s greatest songs from the blockbuster movies Aladdin, The Little Mermaid and Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story.
One of the crowd’s favourite performances received a roar when Ariel’s six sisters broke out into Beyoncé’s smash hit ‘Single Ladies’. Everyone was on their feet and singing along to the award-winning song. The classic, ‘A Whole New World’ took parents on a journey down memory lane, as Aladdin and Jasmine made a special guest appearance.
Ahead of the show’s spectacular opening, the cast-members were spotted taking in the city’s splendid views, before giving an energetic performance masterclass to lucky children and competition winners.
“I came to watch the show with my children because they are huge fans of Mickey and Minnie and most of Disney characters, but the show was so much more than we expected! The atmosphere was amazing and everyone was singing and dancing along to the music. It was definitely an unforgettable experience and we are waiting for the next show in Dubai” said Dubai resident, Nada Masry.
Produced by Feld Entertainment, brought to you by Etisalat and organised by Sport & Entertainment Solutions, this unique family stage show experience will no doubt be one of the most memorable events of the year.
