Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa@Istana Budaya

Living in KL, you'll never run out of things to do. For those who absolutely love theatres and the performance arts, don't miss Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa that will be staged at Istana Budaya this month. Fret not, the play will be staged in English..Yippie yeay!

As the mighty empires of Byzantine Rome and China prepare to be united through marriage, General Merong Mahawangsa must find a way to defeat Garuda’s plan to disrupt this union and fulfil his duty to his king. New friendships are formed and old ones tested as the magical bird Jentayu struggles between friendship and honour, and duty and loyalty to his uncle, the fearsome Garuda, and the two royals in love try to survive and find each other amid exciting fights set against the beautiful and ethereal backdrop of Langkawi.

This family-friendly English language adaptation of the Malay classics of Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa and Jentayu stars Megat Sharizal Yusoff as General Merong Mahawangsa, Sham Sunder Binwani as Garuda, Tuan Faisal Azmy as Jentayu, Tony Leo Selvaraj as Prince Justinian, Siti Farrah Abdullah as Dewi Embun, Shafiqah Shafie as Princess Ling Ling, Sani Zainal Abdullah as Kakaktua, Nyza Zaini as Lao Lao, Nick Dorian as Laut and Acat Aziz as Darat.
