the exuberant classic live
Take a nostalgic trip into cinema land with the San Francisco Symphony as they present this live-to-film concert experience of Disney's iconic 1940 and 2000 Fantasia movies. An adventure through time, nature, mythology, and more, exquisite animations illustrate some of the classical canon's most well-loved works, including the Rite of Spring, The Sorceror's Apprentice, and The Nutcracker Suite among many, many more.
A groundbreaking marriage of animation and sound, the original 1940 film was Walt Disney's very own love letter to classical music. One of the most lavishly produced and elaborate animated features ever produced, thanks to its innovative use of Fantasound, a stereophonic sound system created expressly for the project. This was used to create 'music you can see and pictures you can hear', a dazzling cinematic spectacle that has been cherished by fascinated (and sometimes quite scared) audiences ever since its release.
