Dinosaur extravaganza stops off in Madrid and BCN

The BBC’s live-action production ‘Walking with Dinosaurs‘ (in Spanish, ‘Caminando entre Dinosaurios’) opens at Madrid’s WiZnik Center on 22 November for a four-night run, after which it heads to the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona.

Already seen by millions of people in 250 countries, this spectacular stage show is based on the TV series of the same name that was broadcast in the UK in 1999.  Featuring computer-generated dinosaurs, it was a hit with both the public and the critics, and ‘Walking with Dinosaurs’ has since become a franchise that includes two miniseries, one-off specials and a feature film.

The stage show, which cost $20 million to create, uses latest-generation technology and features 18 life-size creatures (including stegosaurus, T-Rex and raptors) that have been created with the help of scientists to ensure their realism. Each dinosaur weighs around 1.6 tonnes and needs three people to operate it.

The show covers 200 years of history and describes key moments such as the separation of the continents and the change from the Triassic to the Jurassic periods. See the dinosaurs walk, roar and fight in this Spanish-language show that’s suitable for all the family.

MADRID: WiZnik Center; 22-25 Nov; €16-€54

BARCELONA: Palau Sant Jordi; 29 Nov 2 Dec; €16-€56
