Disney On Ice: Frozen presents an abridged telling of Disney’s Frozen hosted by Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald, and with appearances by much loved Disney characters from throughout the decades.
Disney On Ice is always a magical affair and their presentation of Frozen is no exception.
Disney On Ice: Frozen has wonderful set designs, including an inflated appearance from everyone’s favourite giant snow monster, Marshmallow. The placement of the show lends itself to having sparse set designs but Disney On Ice: Frozen makes this work in its favour with simple but elegant pieces used sparingly.
The performances given in Disney On Ice: Frozen are nothing short of breathtaking. There were twirls, amazing solo performances and ensemble dances that almost makes the audience forget that these are people dancing on slippery ice held up only by metal blades.
Disney On Ice: Frozen features some beautifully made costumes that are almost indistinguishable from their animated inspirations. There were far less sequins than I usually expect from a Disney On Ice show, but this made sense and was fitting for the theme.
I must admit that I personally prefer the anthology shows where snippets of multiple classics are used to showcase extraordinary feats of ice mastery. I find that without having to stick to telling one story, the performances can showcase much more in terms of costume, performance and music. However, this is a personal preference and does not take anything away from Disney On Ice: Frozen.
If you love Frozen, Disney, ice sports or any combination of these things, then Disney On Ice: Frozen is a show that should not be missed.
