Disney’s Frozen The Hit Broadway Musical

The Singapore run of Disney musical Frozen, based on the massively popular 2013 Oscar-winning animated film and its 2019 sequel, will be its only stop in South-east Asia.

There will be a lot more to this Broadway production than just live renditions of the films’ hit songs like Let It Go.

There are 12 new songs composed for the stage show – including Monster, sung by the main character, Elsa, who is played by Australian performer Jemma Rix.

The lavish production includes fine details such as Elsa’s sparkling ice dress, which has 14,000 beads and took three months to make.

Corsten’s spate of live shows, which includes a stop at Singapore nightspot Marquee, features the wide breadth of his discography, which runs the gamut of trance, progressive house, ambient and melodic techno.

His list of accolades also includes two Best Trance DJ wins in 2005 and 2007 at the DJ Awards in the Spanish dance mecca of Ibiza.
