LE NOIR- The Intimate Side of Cirque!


IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE JAW-DROPPING
SPECTACLE of
LE NOIR- The Intimate Side of Cirque

From a sold out season in Tokyo, a thrilling cirque style experience is now showing at Marina Bay Sands.

And i cant wait to watch it this week!!!!!

For the first time in Singapore, and direct from a sellout season in Tokyo comes LE NOIR, an extraordinary evening of intimate cirque style entertainment starring some of the most incredible acrobatic acts on earth and will open to a star studded affair in Singapore for the very first time tonight, 12 March 2013. Singapore is invited to enter the captivating world of LE NOIR – a custom-produced cirque show like no other.  Designed and built specifically for the MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands, audiences will be immersed in an extraordinary visual feast using metaphors of white, red and black to describe the diverse range of our personalities.

 

Carefully engineered with the deliberate intention of making the audience a part of the entertainment, the set designers from Kingsmen in Singapore, have been perfecting the blueprints for months now. With a carefully crafted stage set coupled with the talent of Creative Producer Simon Painter, LE NOIR explores emotions through colours as the cast transforms from beautiful and pure white, then explore the passion of red and culminating with the darkness of Le Noir.

 

Twenty of the very best cirque performers from all four corners of the globe, many of them formerly from Cirque du Soleil, are the centre piece of this production and will enthrall crowds in this spell-binding theatrical journey spanning the three key colour themes. LE NOIR accentuates the darker side of these colours using not only the acts on stage but of every audience member as well. The content is surreal, beautiful, seductive and at time hilariously risqué. The production is fast paced, extremely funny and above all entertaining.

Mr. Milan Rokic, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of BASE Entertainment Asia said, “Discovering Le Noir in Tokyo was like a gift. This beautiful show combines a visual spectacle via its unique set and lighting design, and performance dynamics via the amazing production. These artists blew my mind and I am sure they will do the same to our Singapore audiences.”

 

With months of planning, careful engineering and tireless attention to detail, The Sands Theatre at Marina Bay Sands will be fully transformed to seat audiences around a custom-built circular stage of about 2.5 meters in diameter giving a spectacular 360 degree view of the performance as it commences.  Audiences will be ‘enclosed’ within a canopy of curtains designed out of LED lights.  For the first time ever, seating at the Sands Theatre will be limited to a little over 1100 seats to create a unique and intimate experience.

 

Producer, Simon Painter said, “The original concept behind Le Noir was to take the very best of the best cirque performers in the world and rather than create a production in a huge auditorium or arena, produce an intimate style show where the audience is literally inches from the action on stage. Part of the concept is to make the audience experience the show rather than just watch it and a number of sophisticated special effects are employed through the production.”

 

Led by Creative Producer Simon Painter and Executive Producer Tim Lawson, the creative team behind LE NOIR has launched many large scale productions including Le Grand Cirque Adrenaline, which was to date the biggest and most ambitious thrill circus ever attempted in the Sydney Opera House. The show sold over 35,000 tickets in 10 days and opened to rave reviews.

 

With incredible displays of balance, contortion, stamina and aerial artistry, the skills exhibited by the cast of Le Noir is a show that you don’t want to miss. What is your darker side?  Tickets are priced from SGD$35 and are now on sale.

The award winning Jersey Boys, The Musical – is a Must watch for everyone!


IT’S JUST TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!

SMASH HIT MUSICAL, JERSEY BOYS MAKES ITS SINGAPORE DEBUT AT MARINA BAY SANDS!

JB A4 FA

Wait no more, Singapore. The runaway worldwide smash hit musical, JERSEY BOYS currently playing in major cities worldwide including New York, Las Vegas, London, Auckland, Brisbane and across USA, makes its Singapore premiere at the Sands Theater, Mastercard Theaters at Marina Bay Sands for a 14-week season.

This multi-award winning musical tells the true real-life story of how four poverty-line kids from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the greatest successes in pop music history. The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records globally – all before they were thirty!

 
JB FINALE


The Four Seasons? Frankie Valli? These names may not be instantly recognisable but for generations since the early ‘60’s to modern day the unique sounds of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons are often echoed with responses such as “I know that number!” when familiarity and recognition of the band’s hit songs such as Sherry, Walk like a Man, Rag Doll, Oh What a Night and Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, kicks in. These and numerous other Four Seasons songs have been covered by many of today’s pop artists, proving the diverse appeal and appreciation of this music as it lives on through the generations.

Milan Rokic, Managing Director of BASE Entertainment Asia said, “Singapore will be the first Asian city to experience this powerful piece of International theater with extraordinary music and a real life story line. We are extremely excited to be involved in producing this Broadway version of JERSEY BOYS for Asia. It runs at breath-taking pace and audiences will be left wanting to come back for more. This is an evening of exceptional entertainment.”

JERSEY BOYS opened to critical and popular acclaim on Broadway on 6 November 2005 only to break this theatre’s box office record 30 times! The production has since been seen by over 13 million people across the globe. Critics the world over are saying: “Too good to be true!” raves New York Post, “The Crowd Goes Wild” explains the New York Times, “Best Broadway Musical in Years” says BBC Radio2, “Mesmerising – a Seismic Sensation” from the Los Angeles Times, “the wait has definitely been worthwhile … Jersey Boys promises a good night and it delivers … you will regret missing out!” urges Courier Mail, Brisbane.

Mr. George Tanasijevich, President & Chief Executive Officer of Marina Bay Sands said, “We are delighted that Jersey Boys, one of the most exciting musicals of all time, will make its debut at Marina Bay Sands. Jersey Boys complements the many other successful Broadway style shows we have brought to Singapore as part of our ongoing commitment to making Marina Bay Sands Asia’s best destination for business, leisure and entertainment.”

Jersey Boys is also the first show to premiere at the newly renamed MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands, which has just been included within the Mastercard Priceless Cities program, further elevating Singapore and the integrated resort in the world of entertainment. Under the program, the Mastercard Theatres will provide cardholders exclusive experiences and privileged access to the best shows and Broadway productions showcased at Marina Bay Sands.

JERSEY BOYS is written by Academy Award-winner Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe and is directed by two-time Tony® Award winner Des McAnuff and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo with music direction, vocal arrangements and incidental music by Ron Melrose. The production design team is Klara Zieglerova, Scenic Designer; Jess Goldstein, Costume Designer; Howell Binkley, Lighting Designer and Michael Clark, Projection Designer.

The remarkable aspect about this company is they begin rehearsing in Johannesburg and then finalise on-stage preparations in Singapore where the show first opens internationally at Marina Bay Sands today for a 14 week season before returning to South Africa to premier in April 2013, followed by a season in Cape Town and future Asian territories.

Music theater lovers and audiences from all different backgrounds will adore WICKED.It’s an enchanting musical with wit and spectacle and a wonderful score, but it also spans the demographic of people from 8 to 80. It brings in audiences who’ve never been to the theater, and never thought they would go and they come out spellbound and wanting more. Singapore is in for a treat.”
