‘ALADDIN THE MU­SI­CAL’ SPARKLES

Where Melbourne - - Where Now -

Dis­ney’s “Aladdin the Mu­si­cal”, now play­ing at Her Majesty’s Theatre, sparkles in ev­ery way. There’s the sparkle cre­ated by the many se­quined and gem en­crusted op­u­lent cos­tumes and ex­trav­a­gant sets. Then there are the per­for­mances by the cast. Add to th­ese py­rotech­nics, very colour­ful, bril­liantly chore­ographed dance rou­tines and even a fly­ing car­pet and you can un­der­stand why “Aladdin” is de­scribed as one of the most lav­ish shows ever to tour Aus­tralia. The mu­si­cal is based on the Dis­ney 1992 film of the same name and tells of poverty stricken Aladdin (Ains­ley Mel­ham) who meets Princess Jas­mine (Hiba Elchikhe) in the mar­ket­place and falls in love. Of course, there are many bar­ri­ers in the way of their love but with the help of Ge­nie (Michael James Scott) and Aladdin’s friends Babkak (Troy Suss­man), Omar (Robert Tripolino) and Kas­sim (Adam-jon Fiorentino) true love pre­vails. On­go­ing, Her Majesty’s Theatre, 219 Ex­hi­bi­tion Street, Melbourne. 132 849. tick­etek.com.au
