Kristen Anderson-Lopez (b. 1972) & Robert Lopez (b. 1975) Music from Frozen, arr. Bob Krogstad (1951-2015)
Princesses Elsa and Anna are best of friends, but Elsa was born with a secret magical power to freeze things. She accidentally hits her younger sister with it: near death, Anna is saved by some troll-like beings. No longer able to play together, Anna feels isolated, singing "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?”
Reaching the age to be crowned queen, Elsa's coronation includes visitors from other kingdoms. Anna falls in love with a visiting nobleman with designs on their kingdom. Elsa refuses their precipitous request to marry, literally storming away - freezing everything in sight: her power is tied to emotion.
Pursuing Elsa, Anna meets mountaineer Kristoff, and his reindeer. Finding a talking snowman, Olaf, they speak about fixing the weather so summer will come again. Quite taken by the idea of summer, the snowman sings In Summer: “Bees’ll buzz, kids’ll blow dandelion fuzz/And I’ll be doing whatever snow does/In summer/A drink in my hand, my snow up against the burning sand/Prob’ly getting gorgeously tanned/In summer.”
Up in the mountain, Elsa builds an ice palace for herself in Let It Go. Sung by the great Broadway star Idina Menzel, the song won an Academy Award for Best Original Song. Finally, “For the First Time in Forever” is from the morning of the coronation, when Anna sings of her excitement about the visitors arriving.
