Their answer is an introspective number called “Monster,” which Elsa, the Queen of Arendelle, sings at a moment of high crisis: afraid of the damage caused by her magical power to create ice and snow, she has isolated herself atop the North Mountain, but her flight has left her kingdom in eternal winter, and a hostile group of townspeople is arriving to confront her.

The song, in dark minor keys, with a militaristic snare drum pattern, distorted guitar, and an off-balance 7/8 time signature, is sung by Caissie Levy, the actress playing Elsa on Broadway, who has a rock wail honed in harder-edged musicals (“Hair,” “Ghost” and “Murder Ballad”). Ms. Levy recorded a concert-style version of the song at Gotham Hall in Manhattan, and Disney has now released the video of that recording — the first of four “Frozen” song recordings it is rolling out during the month of previews leading up to the show’s opening on March 22.

I've loved Disney as long as I can remember. As a former newspaper editor, web developer, and Disney comics freelancer, I'm able to combine that experience into writing about Disney online. I'm also the co-host of a Disney fan podcast called 'Pirates & Princesses.' Opinions mine.
