“True as it can be, the tale as old as time” has finally premiered at the Amphitheatre @ Sunway Lagoon! “Beauty and the Beast” the musical is Sunway Lagoon’s fifth musical so far and it will be performing at the Amphitheatre from now until 31st December 2012.
With RM4.5 million invested into the musical, Beauty and the Beast will be the first musical at Sunway Lagoon to feature live musicians. Hailing from Philippines, the musicians will be performing under the direction of much celebrated musical director and conductor, David Laugharne, who has been credited in many West End productions.
Beauty and the Beast tells an evergreen tale where true love prevails against all odds. Set in provincial France, a handsome but superficial prince is turned into a grotesque beast by a witch after he refused to offer her shelter.
The witch gives him a mystical rose to which his curse is bound. If he is unable to love and be loved in return before the last petal falls from the rose, he is doomed to live the rest of his days as a beast.
When Belle, beautiful and witty village girl crosses path with the Beast, will she be able to love him for who he is before he runs out of petals on his mystical rose?
For those who grew up with this classic story will find that Beauty and the Beast at Sunway Lagoon will invoke some of the warmest memories and cherished feelings unique to a fairy tale ending.
Beauty and the Beast is directed by Chris Colby and choreographed by David Kort. These theatre veterans from London’s West End have brought the most dazzling musicals to stages across Europe and Asia. Both Chris and David also led the productions of “Peter Pan the Musica”l, “Magical Musical”s, “Aladdin the Musical”, “London the Summer Musical”, “The Adventures of Captain Quack”, and “London Boys” at Sunway Lagoon.
