Frozen: Live at the Hyperion
A couple of months ago, Frozen: Live at the Hyperion debuted as the replacement for the Aladdin live stage show. The show is a Broadway style musical covering the major points of the hit movie, and I finally visited to watch the show and take pictures. Here's a look at this live theater spectacular!
|The show features rich use of some beautiful 3D-mapping projections.
|We start with the ice harvesters singing "Frozen Heart."
|Then cut to young Anna and Elsa playing.
|Elsa does her magic but can't quite control it, resulting in Anna being injured.
|The King and Queen rush after hearing Elsa's frightened cries.
|They call upon the Troll King to heal her, but he takes away Anna's memories of Elsa's magic as well.
|Anna and Elsa's parents close the castle gates and isolate themselves to keep Elsa's secret hidden.
|"Conceal, don't feel."
|But then the King and Queen perish in a tragic shipwreck, and the sisters are orphaned. They never got to build that snowman...
|Years later, it's Coronation Day.
|"For the first time in forever," Anna will get to interact with more than just the royal staff.
|Maybe she'll even meet The One!
|Meanwhile, Elsa tries to keep it together.
|In the middle of the hubbub, Anna runs into and meets Hans.
|The coronation ball.
|"Love Is an Open Door"
|After agreeing to Hans' marriage proposal, Anna asks her sister for her permission.
|That goes terribly, so Elsa wanders off to "let it go."
|And casually creates Olaf. N.B.D.
|An icy chandelier above the orchestra seating.
|"The cold never bothered me anyway."
|Meanwhile, somewhere else, Sven appears.
|"Reindeer are better than people..."
|Anna finds Kristoff and Sven and royally demands them to take her to find the Ice Queen.
|But they're chased by scary wolves!
|And then they fly off a cliff...
|They land in a snowy clearing and meet Olaf.
|Olaf loves warm hugs and wonders what it would be like "in summer."
|Anna finds Elsa and tries to reason with her sister and get her to break the icy curse.
|That didn't work.
|Kristoff takes Anna to his troll family to try to heal her.
|"So she's a little bit of a fixer-upper."
|Trolls. Always setting you up on blind weddings.
|Kristoff brings Anna back to Hans so that he can give her true love's kiss and stop the icy magic that has pierced Anna's heart.
|In the climactic scene, Hans battles a raging storm to try to kill Elsa and "be the hero."
|Anna takes the hit just as freezes to ice, saving her sister's life.
|Tears over the sacrifice.
|But it turns out that was the act of true love required to break the curse.
|Elsa returns everything to warm weather, and Kristoff and Anna kiss.
|Happily ever after!
