Take a Behind the Scenes Look at the Original Score for Cirque du Soleil’s “Drawn to Life”

The latest production from Cirque du Soleil to arrive in Disney Springs is “Drawn to Life,” featuring a unique performance inspired by classic Disney animated stories and characters coming to life at the Walt Disney World Resort.

“Drawn to Life” just made its debut on November 18th, and we have been closely following all of the news and behind the scenes look that Disney has shared about the project. It feels like it has been ages since Cirque du Soleil’s “La Nouba” was performed in Disney Springs, and this level of live performance is certainly overdue for Walt Disney World’s premier shopping, dining, and entertainment district.

While artists and performers were putting the finishing touches on the new Cirque du Soleil performance, the Disney Parks Blog recently shared a behind the scenes look at the original score for the production. Check out the video below for all of the details:

The musical score for “Drawn to Life” was created by the world famous composer of Cirque du Soleil’s last Disney production, “La Nouba,” Benoit Jutras. Among many other projects, Jutras has the distinct experience of creating a widely successful soundtrack to the only Disney Cirque du Soleil show to have existed before the debut of “Drawn to Life.”

The score ties together the all-new story inspired by Disney classics that is presented during “Drawn to Life,” and with the original music combined with all of the other performers, sets, and show elements, audience members are sure to be totally immersed in this new form of storytelling.

Tickets for Cirque du Soleil’s “Drawn to Life” are available now for performances; visit disneysprings.com/cirque to learn more about the show and find out how to purchase tickets ahead of your next trip to Walt Disney World.
