As in previous years, the Alte Oper Frankfurt has once again included a true musical highlight in its programme for Christmas this year, which will accompany the audience into the New Year. In this season the world success BODYGUARD - DAS MUSICAL from 18.12.2019 to 11.01.2020 in the Alte Oper will provide goose bumps of a particularly intense kind. So far, the adaptation of the cinema's success has delighted more than 4 million visitors in twelve countries. And with the tour of the German version, which starts in October 2019, there will definitely be more to come.
From London, the ultra-modern, glamorous stage event conquered the metropolises of the world and can be experienced for the first time in winter at the Alte Oper Frankfurt. Spectacular choreographies, 16 top hits - sung in English - as well as the gripping love story about superstar Rachel Marron and her bodyguard Frank Farmer guarantee the audience a live experience in a class of its own! It will be stirring, extremely powerful and, of course, highly emotional at the latest when „I will always love you“.
A worldwide musical hit
With its premiere at the London West End in 2012, BODYGUARD also became a hit on stage. Not only four nominations for the renowned Laurence Olivier Award and the coveted WhatsOnStage Award as “Best New Musical“ testify to this - BODYGUARD - DAS MUSICAL is also a crowd-puller at the box offices.
The film material as a contemporary stage experience
The blockbuster bodyguard based on the screenplay of the multiple Oscar nominated author Lawrence Kasdan (u.a. Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Back, Indiana Jones - Hunter of the Lost Ark) made the rousing love story about superstar Rachel Marron and her bodyguard Frank Farmer world-famous. In Germany alone, the film attracted over 6 million viewers to the cinemas. In the musical adaptation of the Oscar winner Alexander Dinelaris (Best Screenplay for Birdman), the film material of the nineties becomes a contemporary stage experience that is even more glamorous, exciting and emotional than the original film.
A musical full of no. 1 hits
A musical that, like the film, is given a special touch by the songs of the legendary Grammy Award winning soundtrack. With over 45 million records sold, it is still the most successful film soundtrack of all time. In BODYGUARD - DAS MUSICAL you can also experience numerous other No. 1 hits live, like „I Wanna Dance with Somebody“, „How Will I Know“ or „One Moment in Time“. And of course not to forget one of the most beautiful ballads of all time: “I Will Always Love You“.
