Disney's Broadway Hits, a concert celebrating over two decades of Broadway shows produced by Disney, will be presented at London's Royal Albert Hall October 23.

Featuring the BBC Concert Orchestra that will be conducted by Keith Lockhart, the company for the one-night-only event includes Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken and members of Aladdin's West End cast, performing songs from Beauty and the Beast, Aida, The Lion King, Mary Poppins, Tarzan and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

In a press statement, Lucy Noble, Director of Events at the Royal Albert Hall, commented, “There's nothing like a Disney stage show to get the audience on its feet, and these incredible musicals have become a part of our culture: riots of colour, dance and song packed with ingenuity, emotion and unique theatrical magic. For the first time in Europe, audiences will be able to enjoy all of Disney’s Broadway hits in one incredible concert, in the company of a world-class symphony orchestra and a galaxy of stars, led by the legend, Alan Menken. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the extraordinary music that has made Disney a byword for astonishing entertainment.”
