Catch the magic of Aladdin at Gent­ing

The Sun (Malaysia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

THE MAG­I­CAL world of Aladdin is brought to life at the Gent­ing In­ter­na­tional Show­room stage at Re­sorts World Gent­ing this month.

This spec­tac­u­lar show­ing of the clas­sic from Ara­bian Nights tells the tale of a poor tai­lor’s ap­pren­tice who dis­cov­ers a magic lamp and the ge­nie in­side, who changes his life for­ever.

Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, a pro­duc­tion by China’s DT Kids The­atre, com­bines a live cast with state-of-the-art 3D holo­graphic pro­jec­tions.

The the­atre, part of the larger DT Kids mul­ti­me­dia group, is known for craft­ing cut­ting-edge tech­no­log­i­cal stage mar­vels.

The troupe fo­cuses on bring­ing clas­sic fairy tales to an­i­mated glory, with pro­duc­tions such as Find­ing the Wiz­ard of Oz, Snow White and the Ad­ven­tures of the Mon­key King: The Golden Hooped Rod, which was staged in Re­sorts World Gent­ing last year.

Aladdin and the Magic Lamp was de­vel­oped in 2015, and pre­miered at the Shanghai Zendai Hi­malayas Art Cen­tre.

Pro­duced by DT Kids The­atre chief di­rec­tor Zhang Yi with chore­og­ra­phy by Mic Thomp­son (a Dis­ney dance pro­duc­tion vet­eran who has shared the stage with Michael Jack­son and Jennifer Lopez), the show is a vis­ual tour de force.

Set to a script by screen­writer Yin Heng and with mu­sic by Wang Lingyun, the 65-minute English-lan­guage pro­duc­tion with Chi­nese sub­ti­tles stars ac­tor and host Zhao Zi Fu, and mu­si­cal star Yin Shi as Aladdin and Jas­mine, re­spec­tively.

With the aid of 3D pro­jec­tions, au­di­ences will see some amaz­ing chore­og­ra­phy, from Aladdin hurtling away from a gi­ant rolling fire boul­der, to the evil ma­gi­cian sum­mon­ing colos­sal spears of sand, to watch­ing the ge­nie come to wise-crack­ing life.

Aladdin and the Magic Lamp is now per­form­ing daily at Gent­ing In­ter­na­tional Show­room un­til March 25.

Show­times are 8.30pm from Mon­days to Satur­days, with a 4pm mati­nee show on Satur­days. On Sun­days, there is a 5pm show.
