Barbie Live! The Musical had a sparkling kick-off show here in the Philippines last December 11th at the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena.
I was part of the wonderful members of the media who were invited by Vivre Fort Entertainment Inc. (Thank you so much!!!) to witness the pink transformation of MOA Arena’s concert stage for the coming of Barbie and her friends.
Since I was provided with 5 VIP complimentary passes to the Barbie Live! The Musical, I brought N with me, her caregiver, and a wonderful friend together with her bubbly 9-year-old princess (and a die-hard Barbie fan).
The show started immediately after we’ve arrived at 11AM. There wasn’t much of a crowd that day since the kick-off show was solely (I’m guessing) intended for VIPs, media, and perhaps giving back to their partners in charity, just like what other concert organizers do. It was still a fun day though because there was ample time for saying hi to familiar faces, and gaining new friends.

As expected, Barbie Live! would showcase an amazing array of sparkling costumes, and well-coordinated, beautifully decorated props and backdrops. I also enjoyed how the casts interacted with the audience, most especially the little girls who were watching.
My favorite sequences would have to be Mariposa, and Princess and the Popstar! I just loved everything in them — costumes, props, background, and of course the music. I felt like going back in time because the scenes were just so mesmerizing! Every little Barbie fan would surely enjoy watching and singing along with Barbie. My daughter liked the Ballet Dance of The Swan Lake.

On Meeting a Real-life Barbie:
We know her because of her unique, out-of-the-box fashion sense, she is definitely a walking Barbie Doll! One true blue Fashionista. She’s not afraid nor intimidated by what people think of her when she dresses up. That is what I like about Ms. Tessa Prieto-Valdes! She’s fiercely fashionable! I specifically look at her hats every time I see her. 🙂
Barbie Alive! It’s THE Sea Princess, Ms. Tessa Prieto-Valdes! She’s so nice and warm in person. ♥
I had an amazing time seeing Barbie Live! The Musical here in Manila. I bet the Barbie fans of all ages will surely find themselves singing and dancing along with Barbie and her friends. It was a good show that values friendship, appreciation of one’s beauty and celebrating our life’s many wonderful events ins style!
Please go and see Barbie Live! The Musical from December 11-15th, 2013 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay City.
