Interview with captain barbarossa from pirates show Magaluf
The first thing you see when you drive into Magaluf is the iconic Magaluf Pirates theatre.... what's is like
performing there night in night out?
It's incredible isn't it. When the buses of tourists come In from the airport everyone is looking out at it, staring
in awe of the theatre... taking photographs. As you can see it's just a phenomenal view from the inside as it is
from the outside. When you think Pirates Reloaded Magaluf has roughly the same capacity as MCP Magaluf,
it really gives you a great perspective of how big and popular the show actually is....
Can you tell us and everyone back home thinking of doing Pirates Magaluf the narrative....
*delivers a terrifyingly good Pirates accent and mannerisms!*
True story, Back in the 16th century the Pirates of the seven sees all had one goal in minds... to defeat the
infamous Jack Lateffe. But of course only one pirate and his crew could be deemed brave enough to
complete such a feat....
It's a pulsating story- high adrenaline from start to finish.... fights, MMA, go-go dancers, fire show, sword
fights, acrobatics that need to be seen to be believed.... all onboard a custom built pirates ship. Pirates
Magaluf needs to be seen to be believed....
We are sitting In the quarter deck seats tonight, will be the second time we've seen the show in three days- so
you clearly have some fans here...
Well you've got some of the best seats in the house, the theatre here is a 360 degree show, it's not a show you
sit in a chair and face forward and jut watch... the action is above you, behind you, underneath you... we
always say if you can afford to sit in the best seats then do it, it's a once in a life time experience, enjoy it in
the best possible way you can...
Can you tell us the secret ingredient in the pirates punch...
If we told you the secret we'd have to make you walk the plank... hahha no we can't tell you that. But as I
overheard Lord Mellion tell you a few minutes ago beware of the 'third jug fear' the second to third jug you
consume will send you in space! We had a guy jump out of the crowd and try and board the Pirates ship last
week, whilst a real live sword fight was taking place, he nearly lost his head! Maybe we shouldn't make the
punch so strong this year!
The awards this show has won over the years is just incredible
I think that is a direct result of how good the show has always been- if you deliver on the quality front, you will
get all the accolades and plaudits. But it's always nice to get them...
Massive scores on trip advisor- certificate after certificate of excellence award...
Yes, it's good to know we are still getting it right and getting incredible reviews from people of all ages...
You famously have a celebrity open and close the show...
We never intended to, I think the reputation of the show is so good that when actors, musicians come to
Mallorca that their agents always call ahead to let us know that their artist would love to come to Pirates
magaluf- so we try and align their visit with our opening or closing party...
Russell brand, Robbie Williams, Pharrell, David Guetta, Daniel Radcliffe have all been through those famous
doors in the last couple of years...
How do you get round to persuading the young and lively crowd to come and see a show- because it's not the
norm in Magaluf is it....
Whatever our team say or what ever text you read is never going to be able to do it justice- even with the
incredible reviews we are still performing a show in a resort where people predominantly want to be down the
strip getting drunk... but it's one night of their holiday where they can just be entertained... people need to get
their head round the fact they are not watching Oliver Twist, they are watching a very very risky show that is
strictly designed for adults only! Now we are not saying it's live porn, or something that is going to haunt you
forever with its gory scenes but it's as close as you can get whilst remaining legal!
Would you say the show is more for lads or girls-
You’ve seen the show- we always have a great mix, it may seem like a show is more geared up for girls. The
lads live it though... especially when the Brazilian girls do their impromptu strip show. The lads get so
passionate in the show when it's their turn to perform...
And the music here is incredible - I think after about 20 minutes into the show the audience were up on their
The music in the show is immense, the DJ' the band... the resident DJ has played all over... ibiza rocks, MCP,
he opened for Kanye west 18 months ago- and the band belting out classic after classic work everyone up
into a frenzy- live music, free flowing pirates punch, a few thousand rowdy people... creates an incredible
back drop to a world class show.
You've been amazing, once again we love the show- we know you have to go and get ready for the show- so
thanks for your time.
