The “Bodyguard” musical comes to the Tenerife Auditorium on 4 January

The musical could be enjoyed in Tenerife from 4 to 8 January and in Gran Canaria from 12 to 22 January.

After its triumphant run on the London West End, and the impressive reception for the tour around Spain, the musical that centers on the relationship between a musical diva and her bodyguard is returning to theatres all over the country.

Thus, the Tenerife Auditorium will host the musical show from 4 to 8 January. Moreover, from the 12th to the 22nd of January, one could enjoy it in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria hosted by the Pérez Galdos Theatre.

The musical is based on the acclaimed film of the same title, written by Lawrence Kasdan (screenwriter of such films as The Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark) starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston. Curiously, the original film celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.

Featuring a libretto by Alexander Dinelaris, the show is directed by Federico Bellone and stars Octavi Pujades (Barcelona), playing Frank Farmer, and Luna Manzanares (Cuba), portraying Rachel Marron. It is worth noting that the role of Fletcher, the son of the protagonist Rachel Marron, will be played by several child actors from the Canary Islands, who have passed the casting carried out by the production company and who will alternate turns during the scheduled performances.

The “Bodyguard” is a theatrical performance and one of Whitney Houston’s greatest hits. It is known that up to 15 songs from the diva’s discography will be performed, some of them not included in the film of the same title.

In Tenerife, the show is scheduled to be take place on Wednesday the 4th (already sold out) and Thursday the 5th, at 8.30 pm. On Friday the 6th and Saturday the 7th there will be a double session, at 18:00 and 21:30. The final performance will take place on Sunday the 8th at 5pm. Tickets can be purchased on the Tenerife Auditorium website, on the Perez Galdos Theatre website and at
