Making this event even more immersive, this iconic venue will be transformed into the Madrigal’s Casita for a mystical night under the stars.
The concert will be directed by Chris Howe (Coldplay Live at Whitby Abbey, Bruno Mars 24k Magic Live at The Harlem Apollo) and Jamal Sims (original Encanto film choreographer), with production design by Misty Buckley (Superbowl Halftime, Coldplay, ABC’s The Little Mermaid Live!), and Sally Wood is Fulwell 73’s creative showrunner. The Bowl’s visual transformation into Casita is brought to life by NorthHouse (Coldplay, Queen’s Platinum Jubilee). The concert is produced by Fulwell 73, Live Nation-Hewitt Silva, along with Disney Concerts and AMP Worldwide, the team behind several highly acclaimed live-to-film events at the Hollywood Bowl including Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in Concert starring Zooey Deschanel and Kelsey Grammer as well as Disney’s The Nightmare Before Christmas starring Danny Elfman and Catherine O’Hara.
Conductor Anthony Parnther will be leading the full orchestra performing the film’s score and cherished songs live-to-picture along with the outstanding cast and special guest artists performing the film’s acclaimed songs live. A Colombian band featuring musicians from the original soundtrack will accompany the orchestra.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ ENCANTO tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia in a magical house, in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal—every child except one, Mirabel. But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.
The ENCANTO original motion picture soundtrack features eight original songs by Academy Award-nominated, Tony® and GRAMMY®-winning songwriter/composer Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “Moana”) with an original score by Academy Award-nominated composer Germaine Franco. The R.I.A.A. platinum-certified soundtrack held the No. 1 position on the Billboard 200 album chart for nine non-consecutive weeks and the R.I.A.A. three-time platinum-certified song “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” topped the Hot 100 chart for five weeks. The soundtrack and song held the No. 1 position on the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 simultaneously for five consecutive weeks.
ENCANTO AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL will be produced by Disney Concerts, AMP Worldwide, Fulwell 73 and Live Nation-Hewitt Silva.
