Following a big success to the great spectacle at the Resort World Sentosa two years ago, it has finally make its return this year, held in a span of 2 days on the 10th and 11th of June at the Mastercard Theatres in Marina Bay Sands.
Titled “Live Spectacle NARUTO – Song of the Akatsuki”, the great live theatrical performance features the emotional and breathtaking story of Naruto and his team, on a mission to save their friend, Sasuke, who joined Orochimaru to develop his power in order to get revenge on his older brother, Itachi. In addition, there were memorable unforgettable battle scenes between Naruto and Sasuke, featuring wonderful LED effects, as if you are watching in 3D. In the climax of the show, Itachi and Sasuke finally met, with the hidden truth behind the murder of the Uchida Clan revealed!
The live spectacle presented unique ways to portray emotion, different from reading the manga, or by watching the anime. The well-crafted lyrics as well as the song performances done by the casts brought out the most of the emotions that touched the audience. Indeed, it is a performance worth watching.
At the end of the show, the casts came out and sang the theme song “Hikari Oikakete” originally sung by FLOW. Koudai Matsuoka, who played the lead character of Uzumaki Naruto thanked the audience at the end for the support before the curtain call.
The 2-hour performance featured a combination of dance, martial art moves, sound and visual effects that electrifies the audience with the perfection of the timing between them, which played a big role to the success of this 5-star theatrical performance. The feeling is equivalent to watching a movie, but arguably even better!
The live showcase will next feature at Osaka’s Mielparque Hall from 16th to 22nd June before returning to the AiiA 2.5D Theatre in Tokyo from July 29 to August 6. We are looking forward to bring you more live theatrical performances in the future!
