What’s better than taking a stroll down memory lane? Riding a magic carpet! Our childhood dream of seeing Aladdin and Princess Jasmine before our eyes has finally come true! The Broadway sensation Aladdin will make its Asian premiere in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore beginning Saturday, July 21, 2019. And here’s why it’s worth the watch:
The Glimmering Desert Kingdom of Agrabah Stands Before Our Eyes:
The production is set to feature 40 tonnes of exotic flying scenery and 60 tonnes of automation and staging. Agrabah including the colorful marketplace, the lush palace of the Sultan and his princess daughter Jasmine and the legendary Cave of Wonders.
There Are Songs Written Especially for the Stage:
Other than some of the cherished songs from the Academy-award winning soundtrack and songs that were cut from the original movie, you will also get to hear songs composed specifically for the Broadway show!
The Costumes Are Spot On!
If you loved the colorful outfits on the live-action adaptation, wait ‘til you see the costumes up-close on Broadway. It is said to have 337 glittering costumes made out of 1,225 different fabrics, 712 different styles of beads and almost 500,000 Swarovski crystals. Shining, shimmering, and splendid indeed.
Say Hello to New Characters
We say goodbye to our beloved blue Genie and the animal companions as Genie, Abu, Rajah, and Iago appear as actual human beings on the Broadway stage! This would mean a fresh new twist to the story we know.
A Real-Life Flying and Dancing Magic Carpet
Yes, you read that right. Along with Graeme Isaako who plays Aladdin and Shubshri Kandiah who plays Princess Jasmine, they ride on the real-life flying Magic Carpet for the iconic scene of the duo flying around Agrabah singing “A Whole New World.”
We Get to See the Cast of 34 Strut Their Stuff to World-Renowned Songs
Any Disney song is worth listening to live. One of the best things about watching a Broadway show is the music! You’ve got to admit, there’s nothing better than being part of a huge fandom singing at the top of your lungs. Especially when the songs are “Prince Ali,” ”Friend Like Me,” and of course, “A Whole New World.”
It Is the First and Only Aladdin Broadway Premiere in Asia so You Can’t Miss Out!
Sadly, there’s a catch. This is the one and only chance that true Aladdin fans all over Asia will be able to sing along, reminisce, and experience all the wonders of Aladdin on the big stage.
