Dubai Will Be Frozen this May!
Sisters Anna and Elsa from Frozen are coming to Dubai as part of Disney on Ice show Princesses & Heroes.
Believing is just the beginning in this mesmerising production, which will run at Dubai World Trade Centre for four days starting 10 June.
Told through artistic choreography and acrobatics, it’ll feature no fewer than 10 Disney heroines, with Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Tiana, Jasmine, Aurora and Snow White all gracing the rink.
Peter Pan fairy Tinker Bell will guide audiences along a nostalgic journey as skilful skaters bring much-loved cartoon characters to life.
Fares Hamad Fares of event sponsor Etisalat said: “Away from our daily routines is the world of wonder and entertainment to which we wish to escape and enjoy with our family and loved ones... Disney on Ice presents Princesses & Heroes is the second-in-series of popular exclusive performances in the UAE that we are very excited about.
“After the wonderful response from audiences for the first performance, Disney on Ice presents Rockin’ Ever After, we can only expect the next show to be a greater hit among all segments of the audience – children and adults.”
The production has been organised by Sport & Entertainment Solutions (SES). The firm’s founder and CEO, Ali Haidary, said: “Audiences will enter the land of Arendelle and journey up the North Mountains with Olaf and rugged mountain-man Kristoff as they help the sisters along the way in a story full of action, adventure, magic and unforgettable characters.
“There is something for the whole family. While the new generation will be captivated by Disney’s Frozen, mums and dads will reminisce as Cinderella, Aurora and Snow White search for true happiness.”
Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai’s Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM), said: “Following the success of the inaugural edition of Disney on Ice last year, it’s truly wonderful for Dubai to be hosting this magnificent and family-friendly event yet again.
“The return of such a globally recognised event, and brand, both reinforces and strengthens Dubai’s growing profile as a global events destination. As we become closer to achieving our vision of encouraging 20 million guests to visit the emirate by the year 2020, we look forward to further growing our dynamic and diverse events offering for both residents and visitors to enjoy.”
