Global AV solutions company, Christie Digital Systems, delivered stunning visuals for Disney’s musical spectacular, Beauty and the Beast, which premiered in India on October 21st.
The hotly-anticipated stage version of Disney’s much-loved film features over 100 of India’s best musical performers and is the country’s first ever Disney musical event.
Christie utilised five Christie Roadster HD20K-J 3DLP® projectors to project realistic images onto the elaborately decorated stage sets, including Belle’s House, Tavern, Clock Tower and Beast’s castle area with Belle’s bedroom. The immersive Broadway-style show allows a select audience to participate in the action on 360° degree swivel chairs.
“We are extremely pleased by the love and appreciation the show has received from the audiences. The Beast Castle is one of the crucial parts of the story and Christie technologies helped us bring it alive through LED screens, which made the experience for the audiences even more magical, ” commented Vikranth Pawar, Show Director and Creative Head, Live Entertainment, Disney India.
The 130-minute production is in English with shows in Mumbai and Delhi running from October to December 2015.
