Puteri Gunung Ledang In Concert - "Rebirth of The Legend"

The journey for Enfiniti began with the highly successful Puteri Gunung Ledang movie, which won numerous local andcinternational awards including Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Actress and Best producer. First ever Malaysian film to make to the Top 50 list in the Foreign Language Film Award category at the 77th Academy Awards in 2005. Premiered at the Venice International Film Festival, South East Asia’s only entry for 2004, and Malaysia’s first every film to be accepted at the festival.

Since then, the producers of the film, Enfiniti Vision Media have continued to develop and nurture the Puteri Gunung Ledang brand, on stage in the form of musical theatre, in a children's book in English as well as a commemorative coffee table book, charting the journey of the PGL brand.

Puteri Gunung Ledang The Musical swept 8 major awards at the 2006 Boh Cameronian Arts Awards, and has changed the landscape of the arts industry in Malaysia, creating an unprecedented appreciation for Musical Theatre and setting new records for ticket sales.

In conjunction with the 10th anniversary of Puteri Gunung Ledang, the award-winning Enfiniti Team will stage the BIGGEST concert in Istana Budaya, never been done on this scale before.

Fans of Puteri Gunung Ledang will re-experience favorite iconic and memorable scenes and songs, from both the movie and musical.

Tiara Jacquelina, Producer on PGL:  "I don't know what it is about PGL. Fans keep asking for the show to come back every single year. Everyone in the production team can't understand why there just isn't another show like it. It's magical, fantastical, the music and songs and lines unforgettable. So, for the 10th anniversary of the PGL brand since its premiere in 2004 at the Venice Film Festival, I decided to bring PGL back, in a different incarnation, never done before - we will celebrate both the movie and musical with a mega concert, the biggest concert ever at Istana Budaya. The creative direction is to refresh, reconstruct and refresh a wellloved legend and brand, and make it relevant to today's audience.

For this celebration, I chose Adlin Aman Ramlie to direct it because of his wild imagination. infectious energy and boldness as a director. He is also extremely familiar with the PGL brand, having been with us since the film.

Since this a reunion of sorts, we have also assembled most of the original Dream Team who made the original staging of the musical happen, from the Creative Team to the concert cast to Stage Management. The brief to Roslan Aziz, Raja Malek and Pat Ibrahim was "how can you top YOURSELVES, and give us a refreshed "today"look, sound and feel to PGL."

In this concert, fans will be able to get up close and personal with Gusti Putri, Hang Tuah, Sultan Mahmud, Gusti Adipati and more! We will dedicate a whole segment of the show with a tribute to original iconic scenes and moments from the musical so that fans can re-live their favorite magical moments. I imagine they will really enjoy speaking aloud favorite lines from the movie and musical and even singing along to favorite songs like Keranamu Kekasih, Di Puncak Tertinggi, Katakan Hadirmu Kerana Cinta and… Asmaradana!”

A show like this is almost impossible to put together again, and will only run for 7 performances over 5 days – so if you’re a fan of PGL, don't miss it!”
