Siddhartha, The Musical (Gloria Grace Alanis and Broadway International Entertainment)

By | Published on Thursday 14 August 2014

‘Siddhartha’ is a stunningly mesmerising spectacle. My mouth was agape from the moment the beautiful performers energetically took to the stage, my eyes unsure of where to focus with the costumes, set projections and choreography all vying for my attention. The story follows Siddhartha, a prince who has lived a life of decadence and privilege shut behind palace walls. In search of something more meaningful he chooses to abandon the palace (and his pregnant wife!), to embark on a journey of self discovery. Named after the founder of Buddhism, ‘Siddhartha: the Musical’ is pure entertainment, with stunning screen projections instead of a set, an absurd storyline, and complete decadence in every single aspect.

The Assembly Rooms, until Aug 24.
