DISNEY FANTASIA: LIVE IN CONCERT can be enjoyed by all the
family this Christmas on an 80ft screen in high definition.
Disney shares one of its crown jewels of feature animation,
showcasing selections from Walt Disney's original 1940 Fantasia
and Disney's Fantasia 2000, featuring a selection of the
magnificent repertoire from both films, including Tchaikovsky's
The Nutcracker Suite, and, performed and screened simultaneously
