Aladdin – The Musical

A whole new world! Aladdin: The Musical is about to hit The Capitol Theatre to take you on a magnificent magic carpet ride.

By Benjamen Judd

The Broadway smash hit Aladdin: The Musical is coming to Sydney, running from August 3 until October 23 at The Capitol Theatre. 

It's been described as part theatre, part magic show, part comedy act and 100 per cent entertaining – Aladdin: The Musical is the latest venture from the producer of The Lion King, transforming another much-loved Disney classic into a moving, dancing 3D extravaganza. 

Overseas reviews of the production have overflowed with praise for everything from the wonderful special effects (how do they make that carpet fly?) to the curation of new and never-before-heard deleted songs from the original film.

The New York Times says it’s “Fabulous!” and “Extravagant! It defies expectations.” Filled with daring adventure, classic comedy and timeless romance, ALADDIN is “Pure Genie-us!” raves USA Today.” 

A brilliantly talented Australian cast including Ainsley Melham as Aladdin, Arielle Jacobs as Princess Jasmine and the indefatigable Michael James Scott as the wonderful Genie (arguably one of the late Robin William's most memorable and touching characters) will help bring the Australia season of this hit show to life. 

Undoubtedly one of Disney's most iconic movies, Aladdin inspired an entire generation of kids to dream bigger than themselves. Even if you've never seen the original movie, this is one performance that you should definitely mark in the diary as a must-see while visiting Sydney. 

Aladdin: The Musical will run from August 3 until October 23 at The Capitol Theatre.
