The Lion King Singapore

The Lion King is my all-time favourite Disney animated film and watching the musical at the Marina Bay Sands Theatre came with a very high expectation.

The production is undoubtedly one of the grandest I have seen but this theatre roar seemed to have missed the “fwar” factor.

Could it be the audio quality that didn’t give justice to the songs and the performers? I don’t claim to flaunt a sophisticated ear but even the cinemas are investing on heart pumping audio, why can’t they? Or if they did, my commoner ears did not sense it.

Or could it be the stage design that lacked the grandeur? Except for the creative backdrop execution, the overall set design subdued my “woah.” The mini Lion King show I’ve seen in Disneyland years back was even better in terms of set design.

These are just two things that needed improvement. On the bright side, the actors deserved a standing ovation. They were great (and definitely convincing). I had a wonderful time reliving my childhood for three hours. In fact, I cured my Lion King hangover by watching the animated film for the nth time the day after.

Btw, young Simba and Nala were portrayed by Pinoy kids.. Nice!
