It may only be Monday, but we’re all still secretly counting down the hours till the weekend comes our way again so we can kick back with a nice glass of wine and our favourite Disney film in the background. If your general weekend vibe matches this description, then start fluffing out your fineries because there is one event this Saturday which no true Disney fan will want to miss out on.

Fresh off its successful run in local and international cinemas, the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra will be hosting a special viewing of Jon Favreau’s computer-animated remake of Lion King, accompanied by none other than a live orchestra. While the voices of Beyonce and the rest of the singing cast are pre-recorded, the music will be performed live and then synchronised with the action on screen. Conducted by Kevin Abela, the event is set to be a magical show for all ages with children as young as three allowed admittance.

This is the second such Disney-themed evening hosted by the Malta Philarmonic Orchestra, with the first super successful live concert to screen event coming a year earlier with the live action remake of Beauty and the Beast, also accompanied by a live orchestra.
