Celia El Musical

A new and original theatrical experience that puts Celia’s music front and center while tracing her life and times. The 2-hour multi-media show will feature Celia’s singular style and biggest musical hits such as Quimbara, La Negra Tiene Tumbao, Tu Voz, Bemba Colorá, and La Vida Es un Carnaval, while telling her story in a unique way. The premise of the show finds Celia on a stage once again giving one last concert as if she never left us. As her musical legacy unfolds, she recalls episodes of her life, which are illustrated through live dramatic reenactments, dance, as well as through Celia’s own words.

On a large LED screen, archival material, never-before-seen film and video footage, as well as unpublished personal photographs and documents support the unique narrative style.  The musical numbers are performed live by international singing star Lucrecia, who recreates Celia’s unique performing style, gestures, personality and voice with the support of a 13-piece band, dancers and actors. Celia Cruz always said that she felt most alive onstage and through this unique concept she triumphantly returns to it.
