When Reality meets Magic

Curtains down, black out.
Music. Vibrant colours.
Light and shadow come together...
And there is magic.

Lion King was a story. This was a dream.
Every corner of the auditorium came alive when the drums beat, the actors sang and masks came alive.
They created magic, not from mystery, but by being lively, by being loud, by making their presence felt.
A very different experience of what 'magical' can be, I say.

Movement combined with an attire so grand; the scenes compel imagination, awe and enchantment.
I didn't even think of blinking; lest the dream was broken.
Emotions ran high - on stage and off stage.
Lion King - the Musical is a feeling, that must be felt.
A standing applause.
