BODYGUARD – THE MUSICAL starting September, in Austria for the first time!
Vereinigte Bühnen Wien is opening the 2018/19 season in the Ronacher with the international hit musical BODYGUARD, based on one of the biggest cinema blockbusters of all time.
The blockbuster movie as an ultramodern live stage show
They will be presenting an elaborate German-language staging of the original production, which received the "Best New Musical" award and was nominated for the Laurence Olivier Award. Spectacular choreography and songs by the Grammy-winning film soundtrack guarantee the audience a first-class live experience.
The gripping, emotional story of the musical and songs such as One Moment in Time, I Wanna Dance With Somebody, I Have Nothing, Queen of the Night or Saving All My Love are sure to give the audience goosebumps. One of the most moving ballads of all time, I Will Always Love You, rounds off an unforgettable evening at the theatre.
VBW musical artistic director Christian Struppeck: BODYGUARD – THE MUSICAL has delighted an audience in the millions all over the world. The musical version of the hit movie stands for a fascinating live experience with lots of glamour, thrilling dance scenes and a dash of Hollywood. The world-famous songs are musically unique, and the action is exciting and romantic at the same time. I'm proud that we were able to bring this international hit production to Vienna for our audience."
BODYGUARD - THE MUSICAL tells the dramatic love story of superstar Rachel Marron and her bodyguard Frank Farmer. Former secret agent is assigned to protect the superstar from an unknown stalker – but against her will. Neither the dazzling soul diva nor her vigilant bodyguard are prepared to make compromises – until something happens that nobody expected: a passionate love affair grows between them.
There is no doubt that the great success of the musical as well as the film is based in large part on the world-famous songs of the Grammy Award-winning soundtrack. The title song I Will Always Love You advanced to become one of the greatest hits in recent decades, and the single was sold over twelve million times. With over 45 million recordings sold, BODYGUARD is one of the most successful soundtrack albums of all time.
A brilliant musical evening full of glamour and romance
In the musical arrangement by Oscar-winning Alex Dinelaris ("Best Screenplay" for Birdman), the movie was turned into an impressive stage version that is at least equal to the film it was based on when it comes to glamour, excitement and romance.
