This being Disney, no expense was spared. With endless yards of a high-tech “Aurora” curtain, the Hyperion now surrounds its audience in ever-shifting mood lighting and scenery. Onstage, an enormous LED video wall serves as the backdrop, creating movement and immersion effects as reminiscent of the ride “Soarin’ Over California” as the technology behind, say, Javert’s fall in more recent versions of “Les Mis.”

Enormous panoramic scenic views are created on more than 20 different video surfaces, including a custom curved 2,200 square-foot LED wall on stage and an aurora borealis-inspired curtain so massive it almost completely surrounds the audience. Moving animations breathe life into the space while taking the audience out over the snow-capped mountains and into the mythical kingdom of Arendelle in astonishing detail. Seating capacity in the Hyperion is nearly 2000 so you can imagine the hours that have gone into creating the show’s large effects.
