Resorts World® Sentosa unveils Singapore’s first-ever circus theatre spectacular Voyage de la Vie

SINGAPORE, 21 April 2010 –Singapore’s first integrated resort Resorts World Sentosa (RWS),
today unveiled its resident show Voyage de la Vie, as well as an international cast led by a debutant
Singaporean lead in Singapore’s first international circus production.

Voyage de la Vie or “journey of life” in French, premieres at the resort’s 1,600-seat purpose-built
Festive Grand showroom on 17 June 2010 and will make history as Singapore’s first multi-million
dollar original theater production.

The fast-paced, colorful, stunt-a-minute show will be filled with death-defying circus acts, feats of
agility and stunning sets and costumes, performed by an ensemble of over 40 international cast
members credited with accolades from New York Times, the Herald Tribune and Ringling Bros. and
Barnum & Baileys.

Singaporean singer and songwriter, Jonathan Leong takes centerstage as the lead protagonist, Boy.
He joins highly acclaimed international circus stars Viktor Kee – recognized as one of the best
jugglers in the world - French trapeze contortionist Aurelia Cats and handstand artist Melanie Chy,
as well as crossbow artist Martii Peltonen, the beautiful Finnish rope aerialist Linna Aunola, 15-year
old prodigy contortionist Alexey Goloborodko, and the famous Las Vegas duo with their innovative
illusions and magic acts, Jarrett & Raja, to complete the stellar cast list.

Ms Andrea Teo, Vice President of Entertainment at RWS and Executive Producer, Voyage de la Vie,
said: “This is the first contemporary theatrical circus spectacular to originate in Singapore.
Unprecedented in scale and magnitude, we had to scout the globe to find the right performers with
circus skills - those with the best fit for the various challenging roles especially since Singapore has
no prior experience or talent in the theatrical circus field. Right from conceptualisation, we sought to
identify and groom local talent for a world-class production that will be seen by an international

Voyage de la Vie, or journey of life in French, tells the story of a Boy’s metaphoric journey as he
searches for his identity along his journey to adulthood. Led by the mysterious Lantern Keeper and
the mischievous Game Master, the Boy meets unusual characters who extrapolate symbols of his
inner struggles: love, temptation, conflict and resolution, life and death. The show’s stunning climax
occurs in the scene when the Boy gets his epiphany: that the journey, not the destination, had been
his quest.

Jonathan, the 2006 Singapore Idol first runner-up, has performed at numerous high-profile events.
He said: “This is a dream come true for me, to be able to share the stage with some of the best
global talents in circus and theater production. It’s a world-class production, a world stage, and I
hope that Singaporeans will be proud that we are bringing this to Singapore and come and support
the show. I will give it my all.’’
