All-New Stage Show, Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival, Coming To Doha
Following on from the record-breaking success of Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic, Mickey Mouse and his band of friends, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy will be returning to the Qatar National Convention Centre with an exciting new stage show, Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival from 12 to 16 February 2014.
Produced by Feld Entertainment and brought to Doha by the Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) and organised by Sport and Entertainment Solutions (SES), the Fab-four will be performing in a music mash-up of mega proportions where concert goers will hear the greatest hits from the blockbuster movies of Disney’s Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story remixed to rock, pop, reggae, hip-hop, jazz and country, among other jams.
Director of Marketing & Promotion Department at QTA, Rashed Alqurese, said:
After witnessing the enormous success of Disney On Ice last year, we are happy and excited to be bringing another Disney production to Qatar in February. The people of Qatar and residents from other Gulf countries experienced family entertainment at its finest, walking away with lasting memories. The Disney entertainment brand is a great fit for Qatar and its vision to make it the ultimate family entertainment destination in the Middle East.
Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival is the sixth incarnation of Disney Live! since its creation in 2004. It recently completed a tour of Turkey and Cyprus with a cast of local performers. This is the first time the show will play in Doha.
Founder and CEO of Sport & Entertainment Solutions, Ali Haidary, said:
Disney Live! has touched millions of people around the world and introduced some children to their first-ever theatre experience. We look forward to be working with the QTA to organise another unique and spectacular Disney production for Qatar and hope to bring more Disney Live! productions to the region. We want our guests to walk away with unforgettable memories long after they leave the show.
The Country Head of the Walt Disney Company Middle East and Northern Africa, Didier Vanneste, said:
Our Disney Live! entertainment shows give children and families the opportunity to experience the magic of our world famous Disney characters first-hand. We’re thrilled to be working again with Feld Entertainment, Sports Solutions and the Qatar Tourism Authority to bring Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival to Doha for the first time for what promises to be a magical and show stopping event.
Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival, featuring an all-star line-up of more than 25 Disney characters, begins with audiences watching a video projection of the frenzy backstage which spills onto the stage as Mickey Mouse welcomes guests to his concert tour. Soon thereafter, they will be transported to a new world of hip hop beats, dizzying acrobatics, flying carpets and magical transformations with Aladdin, Jasmine and Genie. Underwater is where the crowd will meet up with Ariel, Sebastian and their nautical pals to groove to the reggae rhythm. And, family and friends will stomp to the beat as Woody, Buzz and Jessie teach them how to boogie rodeo-style.
Producer and Executive Vice President of Feld Entertainment, Alana Feld, said:
We’ve created an environment where audience members will be able to connect with the Disney stars. Within each concert moment are elements of personal interaction and the audience will be harmonising, dancing, laughing and having an outrageously good time with the characters.
