An unprecedented show that leads us into the world of dreams and imagination.
Monsieur Bocamoll, Marcello the Inventor mechanic and Ursus the courageous acrobat Pilot bring us in their Zeppelin to the fabulous time of the pioneers in air travel at the beginning of the 20th century. They take off on their flight to the scene of open-mouthed citizens. Nothing can turn them back. Neither storms nor breakdowns will impede them on their tour. With the audience’s help they will overcome all obstacles. On their journeys through the world they’ll meet people, see cities, they’ll fall in love… music and colour will fill the streets.
An adventure full of surprises, which will eclipse the monotony of the cities with the flight of the Zeppelin. The struggle of these fantastic dreamers to turn their illusions into reality.
La Baldufa presents an extremely versatile show, adaptable to infinity of routes, parades…
