On Saturday 16th February, the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra will be performing to the live action film of Beauty and the Beast. The well-loved music sound-track will be performed as the original Disney 2017 film unfolds on the big screen. 

The critically acclaimed musical score, composed by Alan Menken, including the festive Be Our Guest and heart-wrenching Tale as Old as Time, will be brought to live by the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and singers of Kor Malta, under the direction of Kevin Abela.


In this 2017 edition, the Disney's animated classic takes on a new form, with a widened mythology and an all-star ensemble cast that includes Emma Watson and Dan Stevens as the eponymous characters with Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor and many more.

This unique family-friendly symphonic cinema event will take place at the Malta Fairs and Convention Centre in Ta Qali, at 6:30pm. Further information can be acquired through or from the MPO's website.
