The extravaganza of sight and sound combines seven new animated segments with one returning favorite, “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” from the bold 1940 classic. Walt Disney Pictures’ Fantasia 2000 offers an exciting showcase for the talents of a new generation of Disney animators and filmmakers as they visually interpret classical compositions by Beethoven, Shostakovich, Respighi, Saint-Saens, Elgar and Stravinsky. World-renowned conductor James Levine leads the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
