Phantom of the Opera at MBS - Now Running till 8 June 2019

I'm so happy that Base Entertainment has brought the classic Phantom of the Opera back for another run. It is always a delight to hear Andrew Lloyd Webber's sumptuous score performed live.

This cast certainly did justice to ALW's demanding score, with Meghan Picerno as Christine Daae, Matt Leisy as Raoul and Jonathan Roxmouth embodying the tortured soul of the tutular character. Beverley Chiat as Carlotta and Thabiso Masemene as Piangi, the prima donna and primo tenore of the opera house, as well as James Borthwick and Curt Olds as the two managers lend strong support in the main cast.

Whether it's your first time watching or an experienced goer, this production is certain to provide a fulfilling theatrical experience.

Aladdin at MBS: Running from 21 July to 11 Aug 2019

Our team at The Mad Scene were chuffed to be invited to an exclusive media call for Aladdin, opening on 21 July 2019. The stars of the show flew down specially from Australia to perform hits from the show for us as well as answer questions from host Allen Wu and us invited guests.

This production looks to be a visual and musical spectacular; from the opening crowd sequences to the physical rendering of the central magic carpet ride, we were promised that we will be blown away by the production's combination of stagecraft in costumes and set design, modern technology, atheletics and performance talent. I for one am eager to see how the animated film that I have loved as a child would be brought to life onstage!

Check out our exclusive coverage of the media call, including a full performance of A Whole New World here.
