A tale of dark secrets, love and betrayal amongst stunning sets and costumes, The Forbidden City is a culturally rich production you don’t want to miss mama!

School holidays and got family visiting? If you’ve had your share of Chinatown and all things touristy, there’s a fab, culturally-rich option coming your way soon, mamaForbidden City: Portrait of an Empress, one of Singapore’s most successful home-grown musicals ever, will be in town, again! Get ready for a spellbinding script, sumptuous historical sets and costumes resplendent with colour. From the grandparents to wide-eyed little ones, this production is sure to please all age groups!

Forbidden city is a must watch for the family

With 100,000 tickets in three sold-out runs, this impressive musical is presented by Singapore Repertory Theatre and Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay. Developed by Cultural Medallion winner (and national icon) Dick Lee, the late Stephen Clark, and Director Steven Dexter (who’s worked on some of our favourites including A Twist of Fate and The LKY Musical), there’s so much to look forward to at this production of epic proportions.

There’s quite a cast, too! Homegrown singing sensation Kit Chan teams up with stars Cheryl Tan and Sheila Francisco to play the Empress at various stages of her life. Throw in Sebastian Tan (Broadway Beng) and Life! Theatre Award-winner Benjamin Chow and it’s no wonder Singapore is this excited for Forbidden City!

And that’s not all, Broadway lovers! West End sensation Earl Carpenter (Les Misérables) and Broadway star Steffanie Leigh (Mary Poppins) also star in the mesmerising tale.

The true story behind the Empress Dowager, this soulful tale questions what really happened in the Forbidden City over a century ago. Dark secrets and awe-inspiring sets make this spectacular musical a perfect way to introduce your family to Chinese culture and history, we say!
