Featuring lavish sets and costumes, stunning special effects, beautiful choreography and a larger-than-life Chinese lion, and also boasts a score by BAFTA award winning composer Carl Davis, played live by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia, and dazzling designs from Dick Bird and Sue Blane.

This was my favorite performance aimed at children and I dare to say that my nearly four year old daughter agrees. I noticed the lack of "baddies", however, I don't think it bothered my daughter and she was fully taken with choreography. An opportunity to meet Aladdin and Princess after the show was amazing.

The dancing and music was good but I don’t think it was particularly well curated for young children. I don’t think the sword violence and beheading parts are appropriate for little ones. I would have expected more mindfulness regarding this given the age it was advertised as appropriate for. The teaching about how the music and miming was a good idea but perhaps could have been the other way around... first play the score or show the dance/mine and then ask the children how it impresses them - versus than tell them how it’s supposed to impress them first?
