Introduction

A Whole New World
The tale of Aladdin, who looks to the future with hope in his heart in a quest for freedom.

ALADDIN is a hugely popular musical which has enjoyed the overwhelming support of audiences since its opening on Broadway in March 2014, with every top-class performance drawing standing ovations consistently. The show was nominated in five categories for the Tony Awards that year, including for Best Musical, and won Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical.

So what is it that makes the musical ALADDIN so loved by audiences? First and foremost, it is because the show is thoroughly entertaining. Every element of ALADDIN is designed to bring heartfelt joy to the audience.

Another appealing aspect is the carefully considered characterisation. In this stage adaptation of the animated feature film of the same title, the character formations and portrayal of characters’ emotions, as well as the nature of their relationships, are carefully depicted so as to add further depth to the content of the animated movie. As a result, the tale has been turned into a dramatic story with greater depth.

It’s a Whole New World, nurtured in the hearts of young Aladdin, Princess Jasmine, and the Genie of the Lamp--namely, a strong desire to seek freedom.
The musical ALADDIN is the ultimate entertainment, brimming with romance, adventure, and fantasy. At the same time, the characters’ emotions and actions impart a profound empathy from many of the audience, who cheer on all those people who live in the moment.

Story

A young man, a princess, and a genie set on a quest for freedom and the future –
Their destiny drawn together by the Magic Lamp!

Agrabah – city of mystery and enchantment surrounded by desert.
In the downtown of the city lived a young man by the name of Aladdin.

Living in poverty, his days are spent stealing at the marketplace with his friends, and being pursued by guards. However, yearning for his recently deceased mother, he makes a pledge to himself to show her that someday he will become somebody.

Meanwhile, Princess Jasmine of the Kingdom of Agrabah was feeling confined in her life at the royal palace. She is being rushed into marriage by the Sultan, but is bound by the law which states that she can only marry someone in the rank of a prince. For an intelligent and independent-minded person like her, the thought of that was unbearable.

Aladdin and Jasmine first cross paths at the crowded, bustling marketplace.
Naturally, Aladdin does not know that Jasmine is a princess. The pair begin to form a bond.
But eventually, Aladdin is captured by the guards. Jasmine tries to get Aladdin released by revealing that she is the princess, but to no avail, and it looks like Aladdin is going to be slashed with a sword.

Just then, an old man comes running up to Aladdin. He offers the guards a bribe and saves Aladdin. Having narrowly escaped death, Aladdin cannot understand why a total stranger came to his aid. The old man replies, "I am someone who needs your help in return…I want you to go to the Cave of Wonders". Aladdin is conflicted, but agrees to the old man’s request in the end.

As a matter of fact, the old man was actually Jafar, the evil royal vizier who was plotting to take over Agrabah. His plan was to get hold of the Magic Lamp that grants three wishes, and rule the kingdom. But the lamp is inside the Cave of Wonders, into which only “the diamond in the rough” is able to enter. That is why he tried to entice Aladdin to go into the cave.

However, his scheme fails, and Aladdin ends up becoming the master of the Genie of the Magic Lamp.

Having learned that he will be granted three wishes, Aladdin confesses to the Genie that he wants to ask for his beloved Jasmine’s hand in marriage. The Genie transforms Aladdin into a prince, and he sets off for the castle. Aladdin and Jasmine go out on a magic carpet ride in the starry sky, where they gradually fall in love.

However, being kind in nature, Aladdin begins to be troubled by the fact that he cannot reveal his true identity to her, and in the interim, his precious lamp is stolen by Jafar and his henchmen.
The sad fate of the Genie is that no matter how evil a person may be, once they become a master of the lamp they cannot be disobeyed. Jafar orders the Genie to turn him into Sultan.

Will Aladdin ever get his lamp back, and be able to wed Jasmine…?
