Statement by Tiara Jacquelina, Executive Producer of Puteri Gunung Ledang The Musical

Date : 20th Jan 2009

I am personally a huge fan of songket. When we were promoting the movie, Puteri Gunung Ledang in Venice and L.A, I would wear songket shawls with great pride over my evening dresses and always receive the biggest compliments. I would get people coming up to me, asking to touch the fabric and marveling at the intricacy of the gold threads and the rich colors.

Naturally, we were delighted when Royal Terengganu Songket approached us about using Terengganu songket in Puteri Gunung Ledang The Musical Season 3.

In the scenes of the glorious days of the Malacca Sultanate, Sultan Mahmud, the prince Raja Ahmad, Hang Tuah, Bendahara, Temenggong and the 'Rombongan meminang' will all be dressed in the beautiful songket customary of the Malay Royal Court. The pieces supplied by Royal Terengganu Songket are absolutely gorgeous, and will add to the overall visual impact of PGL when it is staged at Istana Budaya from Feb 6th to 21st.

It has always been Enfiniti's mission to preserve and promote our rich cultural heritage in our productions; be it through the story, the music, the choreography or the costumes. So we are more than happy to work together with an organisation such as Royal Terengganu Songket in the pursuit of our common goal.

It is with this in mind that we have added the theme 'Expressions of Songket' to our Puteri Gunung Ledang Gala Nite on Saturday Feb 7th, 2009. So not only will the actors on stage be wearing beautiful songket, but we hope the audience will also do their part by turning up in a little something songket.
