After eleven years in London and six on Broadway, one of the world’s most thrilling musicals has arrived in Madrid.

 

If you were planning on visiting Madrid to enjoy its fantastic cultural programme, you have to go and see Billy Elliot the Musical, the popular show based on the homonymous movie which this season has arrived at Nuevo Teatro Alcalá until June 24.

For 2 hours and 30 minutes you will feel the power of the most famous dancer from the big screen. After eleven years in London and six on Broadway, one of the most thrilling shows in the world has landed in Madrid. Six of the children starring in it went to the Billy Elliot School and learned tap dancing, classical dancing, singing, acting and acrobatics.

Set in a working-class city in Northern England in 1985, during the miners’ strike, it tells the story of the continuous struggle of an 11-year-old child to become a professional ballet dancer. The story highlights the incredible controversy that takes place when the child wants to become a great dancer despite his father signing him up for boxing lessons. When his father finds out that he is taking dance classes, he forbids him from doing so. This is a story filled with emotions whose beautiful soundtrack, directed by Elton John, will allow you to enjoy a thrilling stage experience.

Other famous plays currently showing in Madrid are La Llamada (Teatro Lara), The Addams Family (Teatro Calderón), The Lion King (Teatro Lope de Vega), Forever the musical (Teatro Nuevo Apolo) and Puss in Boots the meeooowsical (Teatro Príncipe). All in all, a fantastic cultural programme which attracts thousands of visitors every day who wish to enjoy fantastic stage performances. What are you waiting for to get your ticket for the shows?
