In traditional spectacular style Disney launched its latest full-length animated feature film to UK audiences recently at the Odeon Cinema in London's Leicester Square. The first weeks showing of the film, including the VIP premiere featured a spectacular stage performance with the Chinese State Circus of Shangdong before the film was shown. Michael Odam designed the lighting for the shows and employed a selection of VL 7, VL 5 Arc and conventional fixtures, all supplied by the Vari*Lite Production Services office in London. Ably assisting Michael was programmer Stewart Porter who used a Flying Pig Systems Wholehog II to control the system. A total of 25 performances took place during the first seven days to the audiences at the Odeon before the Chinese State Circus of Shangdong production moved on to visit a number of other major cities around Europe to promote the premiere of Mulan in each country. The exception to this was Madrid where, due to the 90 scheduled performances, a completely separate, and almost identical, production was presented, using the same personnel as the original. Production Manager for both shows was Andy Peat, supported on the touring presentation by stage manager Ziggy Chapman, lighting director Stewart Parker and sound operator Derrick Zieba. Both productions were directed and choreographed by Kat de Blois, Resident Show Director at Disneyland, Paris.
