It’s been almost four years since the final ‘La Nouba’ by Cirque Du Soleil show took place at Disney Springs. The acrobatic show was popular, but some Guests complained that it did not have a “Disney” feel.
The giant white building remained quiet for a while, until a new show, ‘Drawn to Life’, was announced. This would also be by Cirque Du Soleil, but would have a Disney-related theme.
‘Drawn to Life’ was almost ready to open when Walt Disney World shut down in March, 2020. The opening was delayed several times, but the show is finally set to open on November 18!
We’re only days away from the Nov. 18 grand opening of Drawn to Life presented by Cirque du Soleil and Disney. Behind the scenes, artists and technical crews are working around the clock to make sure everything is ready for the show’s world premiere.
Today we’re sharing a new video of what you will hear, but not necessarily see, during each live theatrical performance. Benoit Jutras, the world-famous musical composer whose projects include the beloved La Nouba soundtrack, returned to create the musical score.
With a small but immensely talented group of musicians performing from a space elevated high in the wings, the music takes audience members on a nostalgic journey back to their own childhood with Disney Animation themes sprinkled along the way.
Drawn to Life is the first theatrical collaboration between three entertainment icons: Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering. The show celebrates Disney’s extraordinary legacy in the art of animation reinterpreted through Cirque du Soleil’s innovative design, acrobatic performances, dazzling choreography and creative costuming.
