In the new film, Belle’s father, Maurice, is an artist who creates intricate music boxes. His musical masterpieces are unique with special meaning behind them, particularly one that is a re-creation of where Belle was born in Paris. This same music box propels Maurice to sing “How Does a Moment Last Forever,” the new heartfelt song about holding onto memories by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Tim Rice.
In Disney’s stage musical, the theme of the music box will guide the audience through the story. A combination of high-definition projections, dynamic scenery and a little bit of Disney magic will open the music box to reveal the captivating details of Belle’s journey. To learn more about how Disney Cruise Line’s new interpretation of “Beauty and the Beast” will create this outstanding visual panorama, one that reaches beyond the stage, check out this behind-the-scenes video.
