To mark the upcoming second anniversary of Disney’s Frozen The Musical in the West End, and the 10th anniversary of the film, Disney Theatrical Productions today announces the Walt Disney Records music release of Dangerous to Dream – sung by Samantha Barks who created the role of Elsa for the London production.
Dangerous to Dream is one of the twelve original songs which Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez wrote for the stage adaptation of the much-loved multi-award-winning film. The track is released today by Walt Disney Records, and is available widely for free across all streaming platforms, and is accompanied by a music video filmed at London’s historic Carlton House.
Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez are the music and lyric writing powerhouse, not only behind Frozen and the mega hit Let It Go, but also WandaVision, and Coco. Robert Lopez was the first ever double EGOT winner in history.
With book by Jennifer Lee, the production is now booking until March 2024. In its opening year, it received 7 WhatsOnStage Awards – the most of any production – and 4 Olivier Award nominations, including Best New Musical.
Frozen was released in cinemas in 2013, winning multiple awards, including two Academy Awards® for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (“Let It Go”), the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film and the BAFTA for Best Animated Film. It was written and directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, with music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Frozen 2, which debuted in November 2019 is the highest-grossing animated film of all time.
