Aladdin the Musical - lights, camera, action!!

As promised in my previous posting, here's the 2nd part where you can sneak peek at the stage, the costumes and last but not least the musical itself *excited mode already*

After Aaron's brief intro and short Q&A session, we headed up unto the stage. Although it's only part completed, I'm already impressed with the set-up itself. As I said before, it's getting better and better each time Sunway Lagoon stage a musical. It's got more funkier and hi-tech!!

Look at those fine details. It's really an artistic work to carve it all out. The bottom picture where you see skulls is the props for the dungeon scene.

Also spotted is this shimmering shiny gold waddaya call it? throne or stairs complete with lots of magic lamp. Too bad I cant have one of those magic lamp to call my own genie out back home :(

Another must notice prop is the Cave's mouth. Just look at the magnificient mouth. Imagine it all dressed up in lights and voila, we are transported to the desert scene where Aladdin will enter the cave and finds his magic lamp!

Now, what is this mek mek goatie doing on the stage? Remember I said there'll be live stocks running on stage? Well this is one of the star. So look out for errr...him or her??

When they say there'll be a magic carpet, there WILL BE a magic carpet. Can you spot where is the magic carpet in this photo above? It's on the right top side sitting quietly there until it's time to make its debut. I'm looking forward to this scene where Aladdin (Prince Ali) and Princess Jasmine sits on top of the magic carpet and both starts their "A Whole New World" rendition. It's gonna be a 3D effect for this, so keep a look out. You may have the carpet flying above your head!

Aladdin and Princess Jasmine came out while all of us were busy admiring the props in their full costume. Alas it was too short a time for me to catch them in full potrait as they were whisked up to the balcony. Pretty couple eh.

Back down to the studio area, we were given glimpses of what to expect the cast to wear. From shimmering shining bead to head dress, each are made with the finest details in mind.

Just look at those beads! So colourful and bling bling!

I love their head dress for it's aint any head dress. This head dress has lights. Watch out for it as it's beautiful and cost RM500 each!! Handle with care dancers.

We also got a glimpse of Jafa's head dress. I have a feeling it's quite heavy! Very feathery in black and red and totally wicked.

Of course what is a Behind the Scene without having an individual shot with the cast and crew themselves? Don't get all green eyes now :))

We ended our tour by having some snacks at the Lighthouse before bading goodbye and see you soon for the Gala Premier is happening this Friday, November 25th!

with fellow blogger ~ Caroline, Isaac, Shemah and Bella
snacks that was graciously prepared for us includes popcorn chicken, bbq wings and fries

Huge group of us covering the Behind the Scene

Orite, you must be wondering where's that darn clip that I promised. It's here saving the best for last! Enjoy and I'm sure after watching this, you would want to go and watch it LIVE!



Note : No edits were done to this clip, it's all raw. Aladdin and Genie sang without any mike so it's a very very LIVE peek that I experience in the studio.
