With a little more than one week left before the opening show, Ola Bola The Musical is generating more buzz than ever, leaving fans of the movie and the theatre scene in anticipation.

Yesterday, Puan Sri Tiara Jacquelina, director and the founder of Enfiniti (M) Sdn Bhd, the production company of the theatre production, revealed a taste of what the performance will be like, in an exclusive sneak peek teaser for the media.

Thanks to Enfiniti’s collaboration with Celcom Axiata, the production’s official digital partner, audiences will be treated to a magical convergence of two worlds, theatre and technology.

Using state-of-the-art technology, audiences will be able to experience the electrifying atmosphere of an Olympic qualifying match in 1980.

With the help of 180 degrees of projection, massive LED screens, 360 degree surround soundsystem, audiences will be transported from modern day Istana Budaya to Stadium Merdeka in the 80’s, giving them a magical and amazing experience which cannot be found anywhere else.

Puan Sri Tiara Jacquelina also said that the usage of technology in theatre will help elevate the level of theatre in not only Malaysia, but even the world.

“This is going to take theatre to a whole new level, not just in Malaysia or Southeast Asia, but it’s possibly the first time in the world that musical theatre is experienced like this. It’s a game-changer for sure,” she said during the announcement of the partnership with Celcom Axiata at Istana Budaya yesterday.

Tiara also hopes that this new experience of theatre will be able to help draw in a new audience for this artform.

“With the usage of technology and a story like Ola Bola, we are hoping that this musical can draw in new audiences for theatre. They won’t be thinking that theatre is for rich, old people anymore after this,” she said.

With all this new technology combined with a heartwarming story that is close to Malaysians, it’s safe to say that Ola Bola The Musical will be an experience to remember, and should not be missed!
