Singapore’s entertainment calendar is perennially packed and musical theatre nerds should be particularly excited with the huge musical productions heading our way in the coming months.

These musicals aren’t just for theatre die-hards – you’re probably already familiar with them in other mediums, whether that be books or films. From Lion King to Beauty and The Beast and even Frozen, it’s not all uncommon for Disney movies to be reimagined for the Broadway stage. But the most beloved of them all is Aladdin.

Shining, Shimmering, Splendid

The Broadway sensation Aladdin The Musical will be premiering its Singapore debut at Marina Bay Sands from 21 July 2019 onwards. The show will run at the Sands Theatre, marking its one and only stop in Asia.

Making its world premiere four years ago at Broadway’s New Amsterdam Theatre on 20 March 2014, Aladdin The Musical quickly established itself as one of the biggest new blockbuster in recent years, welcoming close to 10 million people worldwide.

Based on the 1992 animated movie, the show follows the rebellious but lovable street urchin Aladdin on his journey of discovery, where he encounters the evil sorcerer Jafar, and beautiful, but headstrong, Princess Jasmine. He finds a lost lamp in the Cave of Wonders, which, once rubbed, releases the crowds favourite rugged and humorous Genie.

The cast will be decked out in extra bling – featuring 337 glittering costumes, 161 custom-made pairs of Arabian shoes, 712 different styles of beads 712, and almost 500,000 Swarovski crystals.

Featuring all the songs from the classic Academy award winning film, including “Friend like Me”, “A Whole New World” and “Arabian Nights”, prepare to experience the unmissable theatrical magic that is Aladdin.
