The Award-Winning Broadway Musical THE LION KING Opens at Marina Bay Sands



Disney Theatrical Productions in association with BASE Entertainment and Marina Bay Sands are proud to announce that it’s Showtime at the Sands Theater as THE LION KING celebrates its debut in Southeast Asia. It is now Singapore’s turn to embrace and enjoy the award-winning broadway musical and join the 54 million people worldwide who have been wowed by the show.

Singapore is the latest leading city to host THE LION KING after sell out performances in New York, London, Hamburg, a North American tour, Tokyo and Las Vegas. The musical is of the same Broadway-quality standards, spectacular music, dance, sets and costumes that have made it a worldwide phenomenon, however, it has also added some local elements to make this production unique to Singapore.

Mr. George Tanasijevich, Interim Chief Executive Officer for Marina Bay Sands and Managing Director of Global Development for Las Vegas Sands Corp., said, “Today, we celebrate the months of hard work and unyielding commitment by the dedicated teams at Marina Bay Sands, Disney Theatrical Productions and BASE Entertainment. We want to congratulate every single member of the cast and crew of THE LION KING who have worked tirelessly to bring THE LION KING to Singapore. We know that the impact of this world-class musical will be immediate and that it will elevate the theater industry in the region. We are very proud of our partnership with Disney Theatrical Productions and BASE Entertainment.”

Singapore audiences will be treated to unbelievable performances by a select cast from around the world. The cast of 51 for the Singapore production is comprised of the cream of THE LION KING performers, including veterans of the acclaimed London and Paris productions and hails from 8 countries and 5 continents. As in virtually every company of THE LION KING, this cast includes South African members, in keeping with the show’s spirit of authenticity.

On stage, Director Julie Taymor’s creative vision blends elements of African art and Broadway artisanship to depict anthropomorphic animal characters. The sardonic and deviously cunning “Scar” is played by Patrick Brown. Jean Luc Guizonne aka Jee-L is “Mufasa”, the great warrior and ruler of the Pridelands. Gugwana Dlamini is the wise baboon shaman “Rafiki”. Lyall Ramsden plays the prim and proper horn billed bird “Zazu”. Pierre van Heerden is the carefree warthog “Pumbaa” and Jamie McGregor is the wisecracking meerkat “Timon”. Mufasa’s son, Simba, the lion prince born to be king is played by Jonathan Andrew Hume and Puleng March is the loyal lioness “Nala”.

The three evil hyenas are played by Lavina Williams, Simon Gwala and Michael Bagg. The role of “Young Simba” is alternated between Lance Reblando, Leon Matawaran and Warren David Saga and the role of “Young Nala” is alternated between Christina De Leon, Myka Torre and Nikki Samonte.
THE LION KING began as a 1994 animated feature-length film developed and produced by the Walt Disney Company. The story, a coming of age parable set among animals indigenous to its setting, the African savanna, tells the tale of Simba, the lion cub who rises to be the King of the jungle.
This production of THE LION KING, brought into Singapore by BASE Entertainment, has been developed specifically for the region and the Sands Theater at Marina Bay Sands.

Milan Rokic, Vice President and Managing Director of BASE Entertainment Asia, “Thus far tickets have exceeded our expectations, but there are still great seats available. A musical of this magnitude has never been created specifically for Singapore and together with the artists from around the world; we are thrilled to be part of this production. Enjoy THE LION KING – it’s all yours.”

THE LION KING plays Tuesday to Sunday evenings at 8pm and Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2pm. Tickets are available at the Sands Theater Box Office or SISTIC outlets by calling +65 6348 5555 or via the Internet at www.thelionking.com.sg. Ticket prices for the engagement starts from $65. Platinum packages, which include prime seat locations, a souvenir gift, $10 merchandise voucher and a drink, are also available.

THE LION KING’s presenting sponsor is OCBC Bank, while MediaCorp TV 5 is the Official TV Station, and Showbiz Asia is the official packaging partner; Singapore airlines is official airline, and it’s proudly supported by the Singapore Tourism Board.

THE LION KING will play 8 shows a week – every Tuesday to Friday at 8pm and every Saturday, Sunday at 2pm and 8pm.

Do you know Moshie Safdie is least proud about The Shoppes? In fact, he doesn't really like it.

I think i will have to agree with him................I didnt really turn out as well as the rest of the IR did. However i really like the Crystal Pavilions. I think the building where the Casino, Shoppes and Convention centre could have been better executed. I feel that with the bay infront he could have made better use of it by maximizing the great frontage that the complex has making it look more iconic. Now its just three boxy buildings in front of what is supposed to be Singapore's most iconic building.

its just TOO BIG! There is no atmosphere and everything is too far apart it has no character...the shops themselves are clearly very nice though!

I don't think it's big.

I think overall, the convention centre/theaters/shopppes area looks most "un-Moshe". It reminds me of malls I've been to overseas, or a really cool-looking airport terminal building - overall, just generic. In fact, The Shoppes reminds me of the old Marina Square shopping centre in Singapore.

Beyond that, the hotel towers, ArtScience Museum and SkyPark are undeniably masterpieces.

agree on the hotel towers and the sky park think the art science musuem design whilst maybe a construction masterpiece only looks good from a front on view.....given it went through such design modifications after being called a bunch of bananas etc in its original design I would have scrapped the whole concept and started again with that

There is a show here in Australia called Mega Structures and Marina Bay Sands featured a while back.

The narrator said that the Art Science Museum would be to Singapore what the Sydney Opera House is to Sydney...don't know if I agree. IMO the hotel towers and swimming pool are more architecturally exciting than the museum. What do you guys think?

the hotel towers given their size are amazing when you think back to the heavy lifting involved for the sky park aswell it was incredible to see the actual lifting taking place!

I have to agree. The engineering challenge is immense. It is truly an engineering marvel.

That's right. It is because of the air base instead of the Changi Airport.

The different areas are as though they are designed by different people, plopped side by side and connected by the most convenient (not the best) design idea. Design and flow of spaces are too fragmented. Example, from the Shoppes to the Hotel, one has to cross below the road. The crossing area are narrow spaces, plain white walls, low ceilings, no design consideration at all. Lots of "anti climax" spaces.

And who would attach a glass panel to a concrete wall by carving a slot, putting in the glass and stuffing the (very large) gap with silicone? Am referring to the ends of the corridors of the rooms facing into the lobby.

Yea, I'll have to agree as well. Compared to the renderings before, where the floors were carpeted and everything had a classy brown tinge to it, it seems to be low-quality grey-granite tiles now that get scratched so easily. Plus, the structure seems so huge from the inside that everything echoes too easily in there and the ambience is lacking.

Inside when you look up too, there all these sorta unsightly concrete bars and wire things that make the shoppes look cheap. But it's true that the stores themselves are pretty high-class for the most part!

It may look cheap but they are crucial for engineering supports. It is not easy to make a structure like that hold. I am speaking as an engineering student, so I understand the complexities of this project. Besides, the financial crisis happened and the budget had to be adjusted accordingly to cut costs. Just the way it is.

Yeah i guess those things cant be helped as the play a big role in holding the structure up and the malls design was probably scaled down due to LVS having financial issues.

Another thing i found weird was that most of the high end shops are located in the basements and not on the ground floor where now you find things like Kenko fish spa??
