If that is true, does anyone know where Fidelio will be going??

Thanks,

It is official, but I don't know where Fidelio will be going next.

That's such a shame. We really enjoyed Fidelio and Anton's shows. They were great with kids and adults alike. Does anyone know WHY they're leaving? Is it by choice?

It is by choice, but not Fidelio's or Anton's choice.

Someone at Disney Cruise Line decided that the shows would be discontinued when Off Beat is restructured to Diversions. I'm not sure if Dueling Pianos will continue to be offered on the Wonder. If that is the case, perhaps Fidelio and Anton will move there.

He's a legend in his own right. Thanks, at least in part, to Momma-Rae! ;)

Thanks Verandah Man!! I was pretty sure that Fidelio wouldn't be on the Magic, but I was hoping someone would know where he is going.

I think disney made a HUGE mistaking, closing dueling pianos and getting rid of Fidelio. I doubt very much that I will sail Disney again. Fidelio is what make our cruise so special.

sue - I had a pleasant conversation with Fidelio while on our August 16th cruise. He is looking for a venue in the New York area to call home to Dueling Pianos. Hopefully he will make contact with some of the powers-that-be in New York City and/or Long Island...

Please keep us posted about their future venue. NYC is only a short train ride away for us!! Dueling Pianos was my favorite show during our 8/9 cruise.

NYC or LI would be fantastic!! I am a former New Yorker, currently in South Jersey, 20 minutes from Philly. If Fidelio is in the NYC area, I could find my way there blindfolded!!

I just hope that we will find out where he is going, once he has found a venue.

Hi Neighbor, I have seen in the past that you are in South Jersey. Where are you? I am in Sicklerville, Gloucester Township.

The day you sailed the Magic, 8/23, I was sailing on the Zenith to Bermuda.

Hi KatrinaB.

Did Fidelio say if Anton is going with him to NYC?

No, he didn't say. But if I learn anything further about Fidelio relative to NYC or LI or USA, I'll definately post the information...

I've been wondering that myself this week. I hope everyone is ok and she is just on a vacation or something.

This was a hot topic a few weeks back...before Rae's cruise. (just where is that Rae??) Fidelio is aware of the Disboards and has replied a time or two and was shocked by the following he has amongst the Disboard members. With that being said, I have to believe he will keep us informed of where his next venue will be. Keeping our ears tuned in and our fingers and toes crossed!;)

Rae fell into disagreement with a Dis board policy and she places principle over postings...

I am sorry she isn't posting here now. Is there a thread that explains what happened?

It really does burn me that they are getting rid of dueling pianos. This really does limit the night time entertainment for adults. I don't think that a sports bar is much of a replacement.

I don't think we can actually confirm that Off Beat is being replaced by a "sports bar" as of right now. I've heard many different descriptions of the new area and most seem to indicate that the bar is going to be suited to act as a viewing area for different types of sporting events but will not exist only for that purpose. If they were going to have the new area act only as a sports bar, I'm positive they would keep the ESPN theme going as that is a jewel in the Disney cable holdings right now.

My thinking is that, as stated elsewhere, the bar will serve a multitude of different purposes. Someone said that it will have a piano; just not two. Perhaps we'll be lucky and they will load up on a variety of adult entertainment in that area.
