Aladdin and The Magic Lamp arrives on the Resorts World Genting stage


A whole new world will be brought to life, transporting the audience to the land of Agrabah as the Aladdin and The Magic Lamp production takes over the Genting International Showroom stage at Resorts World Genting this month. Combining a live cast with state-of-the-art 3D holographic projections of stunning animation, the production by China’s DT Kids Theatre will amaze and astound audiences with a spectacular showing of the classic Arabian Nights tale of a poor tailor’s apprentice who discovers a magic lamp and the genie contained inside.

 Audiences will be spellbound by the story that combines magic, treasures and the classic romantic tale of the peasant and his princess with vivid and elaborate costumes that add to the performance. Children will especially be delighted by the tale with easily-understandable humorous elements, audience interaction with surprises along the way. By the end of the show, audiences will find themselves singing along to catchy original songs that can only be exclusively heard on the show such as ‘Oasis’ and ‘Make a Wish’.


With its expertise in crafting cutting-edge technological stage marvels, China’s DT Kids Theatre (part of the larger DT Kids multimedia group) has the pedigree to enrapture children between the ages of 4 to 12. They have revolutionized the industry with Aladdin and the Magic Lamp being the first ever digitised show for children. The troupe focuses on bringing classic fairy tales to animated glory, with popular and long-running productions such as Finding The Wizard of Oz, Snow White, Pinocchio and 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 by DT Kids Theatre in 2015, premiering at the Shanghai Zendai Himalayas Art Centre. Produced by DT Kids Theatre chief director Zhang Yi and choreographed by Mic Thompson, a Disney dance production veteran that has shared the stage with Michael Jackson and Jennifer Lopez, the show is a visual tour de force. Chief Director Zhang Yi was eager to bring the performance to the stage which is a crowd favourite in China, saying “We had an amazing time for half a year perfecting the story and playing around with the setting of the story and the costumes which is aimed towards adults and kids alike. We also wanted the audience to walk away with the moral of the story which is there are no shortcuts in life; you have to work hard to gain something”.


 Zhao Zi Fu, actor and host and Yin Shi, with multiple musicals under her belt front the cast as Aladdin and Jasmine, respectively. Aladdin and the Magic Lamp has been enrapturing audiences for one and a half years, with their tour covering China, Qatar and Malaysia with over 70 shows under their belt so far with plans to tour North America and Europe. The show is performed in English rather than its original Mandarin to suit audiences in Resorts World Genting as an international attraction.


Actors are aided by 3D projections that accompany their actions, from Aladdin hurtling away from a giant rolling fire boulder to the evil magician summoning colossal spears of sand to bringing the genie to wise-cracking life who steals the show with his comical depiction of the character. Set to a script by screenwriter Yin Heng and music by Wang Lingyun, the 65-minute English-language with Chinese subtitles production is one that must be seen in person to fully appreciate. The cast display their artistry with calculated graceful as well as clumsy movements that they make seem as easy as ‘Abracadabra’ but is actually the result of ten to twelve hours of grueling practice every day. 

Aladdin and The Magic Lamp begins its run at Genting International Showroom on March 9, 2018, playing until 25 March, 2018. The show plays daily at 8.30pm Monday to Saturday, with a 4pm matinee show on Saturdays. On Sundays, there is a single 5pm showing, with an additional 2pm show on March 11, 2018 only. Tickets are priced at RM86 (PS1), RM116 (PS2) and RM156 (VIP), with a 10% discount applicable for Genting Rewards Members. An additional processing fee of RM4 applies to all ticket purchases.
