Malizia The Musical

Post by Simon Turkas on Discover Tenerife Excursions - Published October 25th, 2016

If you are looking for a great night out in Tenerife then you absolutely must go and see Malizia, which is billed as “The best musical performance on the island”! My expectations for this TripAdvisor top rated musical extravaganza were certainly high, especially as it is the latest show by the famous Carmen Mota, who is renowned worldwide for her innovative choreography.

If you like to be around all the action, this is definitely one of the places to go in Tenerife. There was a real buzz of energy as we headed down the steps, with the rest of the audience into the impressive theatre, ready to enjoy the show.

Apart from the excellent “The Sound of Musicals” earlier in the week, I personally have not seen many musicals live in my life, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect from the evening’s performance. Malizia is a large scale, all-Spanish production, with a huge number of dancers  offering a totally different type of experience. The singing, dancing and all round energy were second to none, and everyone in the audience was captivated by the intriguing story and stunning performances.

The show is set in modern day Seville and is centred around Ricardo Montero’s “jester” Curro, the “hunchback”. Montero is an arrogant and corrupt politician who is used to having his way with whichever woman he wants. He sets his sights on Curro’s daughter though which leads to dramatic scenes in the play, as Curro seeks to avenge his daughter’s honour. You really have to see this show live to experience how amazing the performances are.

Myself and the rest of the huge audience were wowed by the amazing blend of Flamenco, Opera and Dance. A massive standing ovation at the end just showed how much everyone enjoyed this musical tour de force. This is an absolute must see!
