This is the second time we were invited to RWS to watch a musical.
In this magical world, a terrifying warrior called The General pursues a precious energy that will make his ominous Emperor more powerful. His quest leads him to Nova, an enigmatic girl, who seems to have the ability to create The Light.
A battle for The Light ensues and he captures Nova, and tries to force her to conjure up The Light. He soon discovers that not only is he unable to control her, her presence calls into question the only world he has ever known. He must make the ultimate choice – be secure in the dark world he knows, or embrace a new world with The Light.
This story unfolds against a backdrop of vibrant and joyous celebrations, memorable melodies, epic battles, and heart-stopping live-action stunts. With songs written by acclaimed songwriter, Dick Lee and featuring an international cast of West End performers, this is a musical not to be missed.
No photography is allowed in the show, but check out these videos to have a glimpse of the exciting scenes.

While I can’t show you scenes from the show, I can show you the interesting scenes from the backstage tour. The tour has definitely made me appreciate the show much more, listening and looking at the amount of hard work and effort put into the production, this is not easy at all.
We managed to meet up with one of the main cast, Vivienne Carlyle as Usha the evil witch. An experienced performer in London’s West End, the Scottish actress-singer has performed in many world-class performance like Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. She is actually very friendly and willingly posed with most of the people straight after a 2-hr long performance. Professionalism!
The girls were trying to showcase their own acrobatic skills too. Maybe trying to get casted for future local productions? Seriously, I don’t mind =)
The training area for the dancers and acrobats.
A priviledge view of the stage from the side, where the performers will standby to enter. I wonder how would they feel when they are getting ready to perform, must be excited and nervous at the same time.
Took a tour behind the stages, basement levels where some of the performers will get ready to spring up from under the stage through some of the hidden doors. There is even a hidden exit near the VIP seats where the performers can get off from the stage and re-appear at the audience seats. Cool!
Last part of the tour brought us to some of the heroes’ rooms – the makeup artist, the costume room and the sound corner.
