Recently we celebrated my Nanna’s 90th birthday so when I was invited to Aladdin the Musical in Perth, I seized the opportunity to share it with Nan and the fam.
And let me tell you, it certainly did not disappoint. In fact, it has been the talk of our conversations ever since!
To say that it was spectacular is a huge understatement. From the opening curtains, right through to the final curtain – Aladdin the Musical was unbelievable.
The costumes were nothing short of incredible. All 300 plus of the eye-popping costumes! Yes, over 300 costumes graced the stage – which by the way were constructed in Sydney, Australia.
And like a fine wine, they only got better throughout each and every performance with the most extravagant detail we’d ever seen on stage.
And oh-my! Each set came with an array of plentiful props and scenery that transcended all of our expectations. Taking us on a journey throughout a series of vivid Arabian backdrops, and beyond – quite literally it was a brand new world (pardon the pun!) with each new scene.
Then to top it all off, the cast were absolutely amazing!! Captivating to say the least in fact! And so talented (often hilarious with their quick witted remarks too), with the following main singers/actors and dancers taking centre stage on the night:
Graeme Isaako as Aladdin
Shubshkri Kandiah as Jasmine
Anthony Murphy as Genie
Adam Murphy as Jafar
Aljin Abella as Iago
Rãwiri Paratene at Sultan
Adam Jon Fiorentino as Kassim
Troy Sussman as Babkak
Adam Di Martino as Omar
Along with the following cast of marvellous singers/actors and dancers: Andrea Arena, Max Bimbi, Ella Burns, Nicholas Eaton, Elandrah Eramiha, Joe Gaudion, Ben Gillespie, Keanu Gonzalez, Chaska Halliday, Kimberley Hodgson, Matthew Jenson, Emily Keane, Leah Lim, Heather Manley, Jake O’Brien, Joseph O’Sullivan, Liam Peel, Sasha-Lee Saunders, Anthony Sheppard, Michael Snell, Michael Stavrou and Lyndon Watts.
At the end of the show we were pretty much the last to leave as we sat in awe talking about each part that we loved. Reminiscing the vivid colours and extravagant costumes, scene by scene.
If you’re a Disney, musical, live performance fan and/or you just love a great night of entertainment, then Aladdin the Musical is a must-see performance.
