A stunning musical – in Singapore for the first time after two highly-acclaimed sell-out seasons in Malaysia – Puteri Gunung Ledang brings to life the legend of an ill-fated romance between a beautiful princess and handsome warrior, set in the kingdom of Majapahit in ancient Java and the Sultanate of Malacca.

In it, Puteri, the princess, dreams of true love. Her brother, Gusti Adipati, the ruler of Majapahit, however, has different concerns. His kingdom is undergoing attack by Demak, a warring state. He enlists the help of the Sultan of Malacca who dispatches to Majapahit an army led by his loyal subject, the warrior Hang Tuah. Puteri and Hang Tuah fall in love and agree to meet on Gunung Ledang in Hang Tuah's homeland, Malacca, after the battle. When the battle drags on, Puteri decides to wait for her beloved on Gunung Ledang. Little does she know that she has been betrothed by her brother to the Sultan of Malacca.

Watch this intriguing story of romance, heroism and tragedy unfold against a dazzling backdrop of breathtaking sets, music and choreography. Feel the magic of the unforgettable score composed by Dick Lee, with musical direction by Roslan Aziz, Malaysia's magical maestro. At once traditional and modern, the soundscape resonates with gorgeous chorus lines and pulsating rhythms, animated by intricate, spirited choreography.

Starring Tiara Jacquelina (Best Actress, 2005's 50th Asia Pacific Film Festival) and Stephen Rahman-Hughes (West End lead actor in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Bombay Dreams).

(Performed in Malay with English surtitles, 180mins with no intermission)
