'Billy Elliot' says goodbye on May 22 with a million viewers

The end of the most musical season in Barcelona is approaching and the musical Billy Elliot will have been on the bill since October to definitively lower the curtain at the Victòria theater in Barcelona on May 22.

After four years in Madrid surfing the pandemic and another one in Barcelona, ​​the show, which features the score by Sir Elton John and lyrics by Lee Hall, will forever keep the tutus, boxing gloves and picks and shovels of the miners, since the magnitude of the assembly does not facilitate a possible tour of other cities.

Thus, in these two weeks there are the last opportunities to vibrate, laugh, shout and be moved by the story of the dancing boy, whose passion for dancing coincides with the economic collapse of its population due to the closure of the coal mines in the Northern England under Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Since its premiere in 2017 in Madrid, the musical has raised the curtain 1,200 times and more than a million spectators have applauded it. Produced by SOM Produce, Billy Elliot has an orchestra that performs the music as a director, and the artistic and technical team is made up of 140 professionals, including actors, musicians, technicians and teachers.

Among all of them, it is worth highlighting the children's cast, which is made up of more than 60 boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 13, who are combined for the different functions. Throughout these years they have been trained expressly for the show at the Coco Comín school, with disciplines such as classical dance, tap dance, acrobatics, singing and acting. After all, they are the ones who take on the leading roles in this emotional musical.
