Magaluf Pirates Show Manager Interviewed

Lord Mellion Pirates Events Manager

Name: Lord Mellion

Age: None of your business

Role: Pirates Event Manager

Can you explain the story of Pirates to us all…, popularity of pirates show

How has pirates kept its popularity over all these years...

By evolving. By constantly making the Pirates Magaluf show bigger and better, staying current. We are also fortunate because unlike other events here in Magaluf we don't have to focus so hard on social media pushes or advertising. We have the young and lively crowed coming to see Pirates Reloaded Magaluf saying my mum came here 15 years ago and said It was the best thing she had ever seen, i MUST see it. When you create a spectacle as enchanting as Pirates Magaluf you will always get excellent reviews, and people tell people!

The show was tremendous- where do all the acrobats come from....

Where don't they come from that may be easier to answer... Brazil, Argentina, England, South Korea, Colombia, United States... we have literally handpicked the best talent in the world to come and work at Pirates Magaluf. They have 18 Olympic medals between them. Lots of them have worked for cirque de solie, and have toured the world. Broadway, the west end- these guys have performed literally everywhere. Our dancers were in the half time show at the Super Bowl this year with Beyonce- it doesn't get much bigger than that does it?

Has the audience changed...

No, youngsters would hate to think they are the same as the crowd ten years ago, or even their parents who were here twenty years ago to watch the Pirates show. But what I love about people who come to Magaluf is they are all here for one thing. To have a bloody good time! The atmosphere is electric every night in the show and that's been a constant for the last fifteen or so years here in Magaluf.

Can you explain the story of Pirates to us all...

I'm gonna leave that one to this suspicious looking pirate standing behind you!! Hahah he can tell the story of the show better than anyone!

Hahahha ok.

Coming to see a show probably isn't what the 18-25 crowed expect to see when they come to magaluf is it...

No. It isn't. But when you look at the reviews in Trip advisor it's the most highly ranked thing in Magaluf, along with the magaluf booze cruise they have here- Sunset Booze Cruise. Those reviews on trip advisor aren't fabricated- they are real reviews from 17- 24 year olds from the past ten years- we are very proud of those as well. And come on, it's not a show... the audience are the show! They are as involved as the cast! And another thing- the magaluf strip is an amazing place but seven nights on the bounce? Come on- jazz it up a bit- do something different. And let's be honest. Nobody can deny that Pirates Reloaded is something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

We will agree with that- we've never seen anything like it...

You sold out the venue every night during peak season...

Yep. Again, it's because what we do is Completely special. There is nothing like Pirates Magaluf anywhere... but yes don't wait till you get here to book up, if you manage to get a seat it will right at the back- book online here at magalufevents.com and know you have got something incredible in store

How would you say this compares to other nightly events here in Magaluf? For example the Magaluf Full Moon Party has been huge these last couple of years...

Listen, I love the Full Moon Party Magaluf, it's been a breath of fresh air here in resort... I've been down a couple of times. But Pirates is Magalufs longest running night event- over two million people have watched this show and it's not slowing down, it's getting more and more popular...

And what about the after party?

The show can finish at 1am... this is Magaluf! We are only just getting started! The afterparty is held at one of the big bars just round the corner from the theatre... it's a great chance to carry the Pirates party on through till the end of the night... you can meet all the cast and crew! And we always have a few surprises up our sleeves...

Does all the free alcohol help people get in the mood?

Oh yesssss. When does alcohol not help people get in the mood! During the first half an hour when the people on the tables are all on their first or second jug of pirates punch, they are all quietly watching the show- by the time the third hug kicks in they are all standing on the tables, screaming for their pirates, punching the air, like their lives depend on it! I love it! I don't think people know how strong that pirates punch is...

How important is the audience participation...

Without it there is not a show.... like we say, the audience are the show. You don't watch this show- you are in the Pirates Magaluf show.

You've been great- like we said to say this show is spectacular does not do it justice, we could watch it again and again...

Well yeah, that's the beauty- no two shows are ever the same!!

Thanks for having us.

Tell us more...

Noooooooo, can't give it away! Let's just say you'd be crazy to go home after the show!
