Mimpi Artilla – Kisah Cinta Seni
Back by popular demand is the musical theatre piece, Mimpi Artilla, the bespoke production that was first unveiled as the royal performance during The Royal Arts Gala in January 2014 at the Muzium Diraja (former Istana Negara). Written and directed by the acclaimed Adlin Aman Ramlie, renowned for his works in Puteri Gunung Ledang the movie, Akademi Fantasia, Maharaja Lawak Mega, Puteri Gunung Ledang the Musical and P.Ramlee the Musical amongst others, Mimpi Artilla was produced by My Performing Arts Agency (MyPAA) for the purpose of The Royal Arts Gala, in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism and Culture (MoTaC), and the National Department for Culture and Arts (JKKN).
The second installation of Mimpi Artilla is scheduled for 8:30 pm and 3:00 pm, 13 and 14 September 2014 respectively at the Experimental Theatre (Panggung Eksperimen), Universiti Malaya, Kuala Lumpur. The 90-minute, bi-lingual musical theatre is one of the many artistic and cultural presentations under the multi-faceted Visit Malaysia Year (VMY) tourism campaign as an avenue to showcase the diverse talents that the land possesses. The 14 September show provides the audience an opportunity to interact with the creative team and actors after the performance.
Returning to perform tunes composed by Onn San, award-winning composer whose works include The Secret Life of Nora and Everworld, are Ezlynn famous for her chart topping hit Hi Hi Bye Bye. Playing opposite her is Vince Chong, Malaysia’s singing heartthrob famous for his involvement in Akademi Fantasia 1, Muzikal Terima Kasih Cinta, The Producers and more. Choreographing and leading the 38-person ensemble is Zamzuriah Zahari, an upcoming icon in both the traditional and contemporary discipline of dance.
The much-anticipated show revolves around Puteri Artilla (Ezlynn), who hails from the Mayan Kingdom, where the arts abound. This spunky and free spirited princess is betrothed to Prince Syah Rohan (Vince Chong) from the neighbouring Kingdom of Rohan; a kingdom that has denounced the arts since the time of their forefathers. Puteri Artilla embarks on an expedition with the Prince, one that forces them to learn about each other. Along with the Prince’s royal entourage, the expedition brings them to art-enriched corners of her Kingdom; a journey that eventually changes the Prince’s perception of the arts and of the Puteri.
