The Magik Theatre presents Disney’s Aladdin Dual Language Edition
Featuring San Antonio’s “El Charro de Oro”, Sebastien de la Cruz as Aladdin
Disney's Aladdin Dual Language Edition features the Academy Award-winning score from Disney's animated classic, with lyrics in both Spanish and English. In the title role of Aladdin, the production will feature San Antonio’s own Sebastien de la Cruz, of “America’s Got Talent” and NBA Finals “National Anthem” fame. Sebastien has been showcased nationally at Mariachi conferences, performed in the Southwest alongside Charro Jerry Diaz and has the privilege of performing with the San Antonio Symphony at both the Majestic Theatre and the Tobin Center in San Antonio, Texas for the annual Fiesta Pops concert. He sang the National Anthem at the 2013 NBA Finals and the Democratic National Convention in 2016 and recently released his third album, Nuestro Amor.
In Disney's Aladdin Dual Language Edition, our story begins centuries ago, when the royalty of Agrabah spoke one language and the citizens another. Communication is impossible without translation... which is controlled by the evil vizier, Jafar. When the rebellious princess (Jazmin) and a delinquent street rat (Aladdin) meet in the marketplace, they find something special in one another. Together, they work to transcend the barriers between them and, with a little magic, help create a better future for themselves and for Agrabah. This bilingual adaptation returns to The Magik Theatre, last appearing on our stage in 2012.
Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, Spanish Lyrics by Walterio Pezqueira, Music Adapted, Arranged and Orchestrated by Bryan Louiselle, Book by Jim Luigs and Jose Cruz Gonzalez, Based on the 1992 Disney film Aladdin.
