‘Disney on Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic’, a globally popular live family entertainment show, will have its Middle East debut, staging seven performances, at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) from June 13 to 16. Produced by Feld Entertainment and watched by millions of children and families across the globe, Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic brings together over 60 unforgettable Disney stars that span the decades, a sing-along score of award-winning Disney music, stunning choreography, elaborate sets and beautiful costumes. Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and their friends from Disney’s The Little Mermaid, The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast will be taking to the ice with beloved princesses Cinderella and Snow White. Joining them are Woody and Buzz from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story, Nemo and Dori from Disney/Pixar’s Finding Nemo and even Stitch from Lilo & Stitch drops in to wreak his usual havoc during this grand celebration. Ice engineers will arrive in Doha two weeks before the event and begin building the ice from scratch using two 64-tonne refrigeration units and 48,000 litres of water. The process will take between 24 and 48 hours. Ali Haidary, Sport & Entertainment Solutions Founder & CEO, said: “Our partnership with Feld Entertainment signals the beginning of a long-term commitment to bringing live family entertainment productions to the Middle East. We will begin with Disney On Ice, in Doha, this June, and we plan to bring other Feld Entertainment Live events to the region in the future.” Horacio Renna, Vice-President of Feld Entertainment Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “Over the last 30 years, Disney On Ice has travelled to over 60 countries throughout the world, but never to Qatar. It has been our goal to find a local partner who would work closely with Feld Entertainment to host the event in the region.” Abdullah Al Bader, Director of Tourism, Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA), said: “We are pleased to be hosting the biggest Disney On Ice production, 100 Years of Magic, for the first time in the Middle East.” He added: “Welcoming such a renowned international family entertainment brand falls in line with the QTA’s objective to make Doha a popular family entertainment destination. We would invite families to be part of the magical Disney experience, which has been seen by millions throughout the world.” Tickets for the show start from QR150 and go on sale next month at Virgin Megastores across Doha or at
