CORK, 12 September, 2018 - Aviva has partnered with Cork Opera House to sponsor the eagerly anticipated panto, Aladdin.  The magical journey of Aladdin will bring you to a whole new world of panto, and will run from 29 November to 20 January.

The widely acclaimed creative team that brought you Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and Ireland’s only 5-star panto – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs returns to bring the enchanting tale of Aladdin to life on the stage.

Denis Kelleher, Chief Distribution Officer, Aviva, said: “We’re delighted that Aladdin will be safe in the hands of Aviva this year! We are really excited to be working with Cork Opera House as the title sponsor on this year’s pantomime. Cork Opera House productions are spectacular, and panto is a real family favourite in households throughout Cork.  Aladdin will be a highlight of Christmas for so many children and I am sure it will delight all grownups who see it too!”
