Sounds and Sorcery celebrating Disney FANTASIA, the ground-breaking hit show inspired by the 1940 Disney animation must end its strictly limited London run on 30 September. The Vaults' latest immersive show has been casting a spell over audiences this summer with its unique installations, theatrical performances and technical wizardry bringing to life the world's most iconic classical music in a modern reimagining of Fantasia. Book tickets here!
Audience members are invited to step inside The Vaults maze of tunnels in Waterloo, London, where, wearing individual headphones, the orchestra will guide them on an interactive concert experience combining cutting edge binaural sound, 3D projections, elaborate set designs and dazzling lighting effects.
Arrive at your destination underneath Waterloo station, collect your headphones at the door and step inside the tunnels. It's time for a dance with a funky hippo, walk in a prehistoric wasteland, seek out the fairies in a magical forest and, if you dare, sneak into the Sorcerer's lair.
The cast includes Natasha Volley as the Sorcerer with Anna Alvarez, Samuel Cole and Molly Scott as the three Brooms in The Sorcerer's Apprentice, and Miranda Menzies, Angelo Paragoso, Phil Sealey, Janina Smith as The Vaults' own interpretations of the Crocodile, Hippo, Elephant and Ostrich in The Dance of the Hours.
Under the musical direction of Stephen Higgins, a 96-piece orchestra has created a new recording especially for the experience, featuring The Sorcerer's Apprentice, The Rite of Spring, Night on Bald Mountain, Nutcracker Suite, Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, Dance of the Hours and Ave Maria.
Sounds and Sorcery celebrating Disney Fantasia is directed by Daisy Evans, the founder and Artistic Director of Silent Opera whose work focuses on the use of headphones to bring classical music to new audiences. Design for the production has been created by Kitty Callister in collaboration with a variety of artists who have created the installations including David Gregory Sound Designer, Doug Foster Video Designer, Jake Wiltshire Lighting Designer and Andy George Production Manager.
