We’re delighted to introduce the cast of Aladdin, The Met’s pantomime for Christmas 2023!

Produced by panto specialists Big Tiny, this laugh-out-loud show will take you on a magic carpet ride to a mystical world of genies, flying carpets, and adventure. Will Aladdin win the hand of Princess Jasmine? Will villainous Abanazar conquer the kingdom? The only way to find out is to come to The Met this December…

The show will be brought to life by a cast of seven, plus the talented young people of the Debra Simmons School of Dance…
