Aladdin The Musical @ Sunway Lagoon : Gala Premiere
After the huge success in bringing Peter Pan and Magical Musicals to our shore @ Sunway Lagoon Amphitheatre, we are privileged to catch yet another West End production – Aladdin The Musical.
We were there for the Gala Premiere and what can I say? After enjoying Peter Pan last Christmas and Magical Musicals back in June this year, I have got to say Aladdin the Musical is the BEST of them all! A timeless tale told with a modern twist. I love that they use current top hits to tell the story. We can so relate to the songs that were performed tonight namely ‘Billionaire’ and ‘Marry You’.
The beautiful usherers
Here are the main casts (In order of appearance)
Jess Ellmer as Slave of The Ring
Joshua Tonks as Aladdin
Peter Jamieson as the Sultan
Nikki Mae as Princess Jasmine
Michael Morgan as Jafar
Gareth Heesom as Genie of the Lamp
We are first taken to the marketplace of Askabar where Aladdin ‘flew’ in from the crowd. It was a spectacular surprise!
The stage is simply beautiful.
In one of the scene, Aladdin is taken to the dungeons where Jafar, disguised as an old man, helps him escape and in return, Aladdin has to enter the Cave of Wonders to get the Magical Lamp.
In the dungeon, *Spoiler alert* The crowd burst out laughing when Aladdin said, “How can I trust someone who looks like Simon Cowell?” when Jafar negotiated the deal with him! EPIC!
Ethan is afraid of the Cave especially when it opens its mouth but sat through till the end :D
The cheeky Genie steals the show; singing and dancing to Lady Gaga, Wonder Girls and more each time he made his appearance.
Watch this video of Genie. He is just too cute!
It was a wonderful night that I wish won’t end so soon but good things must come to an end..
The cast bidding farewell
Princess Jasmine and Aladdin waving goodnight.
LOVE this too! Watch this video of Aladdin and Jasmine performing the famous song in any wedding occasion, “Marry”
Here’s a video of Princess Jasmine and Aladdin performing ‘A Whole New World’. This is Ethan’s favourite scene. Watch carefully and you’ll see KLCC in there!
Oh yeah, did I tell you? It is also in 3D! So get the glasses ready and watch this in 3D in Act Two.
