Test your knowledge on some of the most memorable musicals
Musicals have the power of expressing emotions through song and dance, thus delivering a unique, lyrical style of storytelling. Typically, such films have characters communicating through songs and often breaking into a jig when the scene demands it or the mood justifies it. Unsurprisingly, Disney films have been on top of this genre, rendering musicals such as Aladdin, Frozen, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Tangled, among others. But over the years, musicals have delved into a range of subjects and genres and have kept up with contemporary styles of cinematic storytelling. They have ranged from epic period musicals such as Les Misérables to Tim Burton’s dark musical, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Movies such as Into the Woods, Chicago, La La Land, Mamma Mia!, Beauty and the Beast (2007), and the iconic Sound of Music, are some of the critically-acclaimed musicals that have elevated this genre and also redefined it in many ways. Annette is the latest addition to this list of memorable musicals and will be available to stream on Amazon Prime soon.
