European Premiere Rehearsal Videos

Hi everyone, firstly I just want to say sorry it's been so long and, more importantly, a big thank you to both David and Steffen who have been posting updates on the upcoming Denmark production in the comments sections.  Because of their much appreciated help, some of you may have already seen the videos I'm posting here now, but it's always good to watch them again ;o)

The first is video can be found on YouTube and features behind the scenes footage from early rehearsals along with interviews (in Danish) with theatre director Soren Moller and actor Pelle Emil Hebsgaard, who plays Genie.

An even longer behind the scenes video can be found at Fredericia Avisen.  This video shows pretty much the full choreography for Arabian Nights and Prince Ali (basically it's the first video but uncut and without the interviews).

And if that's not enough here's some new videos that I actually just found by accident when embedding the first YouTube video!!

Here is an interview (in Danish) with Johannes Nymark who plays Aladdin;

And here is the trailer for the show, which has it's premiere next Thursday!  Wow, less than a week until the European Premiere of Aladdin: The New Stage Musical. Can't quite believe how fast that's come around!  Whilst there's no footage in the trailer, it does offer us a quick glimpse at the costumes for Aladdin, Jasmine and Genie (and it looks like Fredericia is joining Tuacahn with a blue Genie).

Tickets for the show, which runs 4th October through 11th November, are now on sale at its official website

Once again a big thank you to Steffen and David for keeping things up to date.  I knew that Jane and I being part of an amateur production of Whistle Down the Wind would take up a lot of my free time, but having never had a pet before I was totally unprepared for the two adorable bunnies that recently came into our lives.  But things are getting back to normal now (a new normal anyway), and I'd determined to have my full Tuacahn write up done next weekend in time to post by the 1st October.

Aladdin: The New Stage Musical at Tuacahn Amphitheatre
I know I keep saying this, but there's not long left to see this fantastic show in the ideal setting of the Tuacahn Amphitheatre, so if you can see it please make the journey, you really won't regret it.  Tickets are still on sale at their website.


  1. Here's a couple of photos from the European production:
    There are two photos, from "A whole new world" and "Friend like me" – click the circles below the photos to switch.

    And here's a small video with Johannes and Maria Lucia (Aladdin and Jasmine …still in Danish) talking about how great it is to be able to influence the musical, since it's the European premiere. They also talk about the visual effects, mainly the animations on the 108 square meters LED screen that serves as the stage background.

    Two weeks till I'm going – can't wait!
    …it's normally quite cheap to go to Denmark from UK, you should consider going :-)

  2. Oh, forgot the second link :-)

  3. Thanks Steffen! I'll use those links tomorrow when I do a post for the European Premiere (can't believe it's less than 24 hours away!)

    I actually did consider it briefly back when it was first announced (I have family in Denmark) but as I can't speak a word of Danish I'd have been completely lost! Now I've seen the show in English and know what happens, I'd love to see how Frederica handle the show, but really can't afford another holiday this year.

    I really hope you enjoy it and I can't wait to hear all about it!!

  4. Here's another couple of videos:

    One from the pre-premiere:

    And one from the premiere:

    By the way, the Danish weekly Donald Duck magazine featured a story about the Danish Aladdin production …of course, it's taking place in Duckburg instead of Fredericia :-)


  5. Here's yet another video from the premiere:

    ...six days left, can't wait :-)
