Perhaps the most popular of pantos, with the one exception of "Cinderella", this version follows traditional lines.
Aladdin is tricked by wheeler-dealer/magician Abanazar into retrieving the magic lamp from a cave in the hills. The lamp enables him to pay court to Princess Ting-Ling, but Abanazar gets it back and usurps the throne of China. However a combination of luck and youthful ingenuity restores the status quo and all ends happily. The plot fairly cracks along with a mixture of comic set pieces and spectacular FX.
