Teatro Real participated in the 2022 ‘Cabalgata de los Reyes Magos’.


– Department of props of the Royal Theater of Madrid.
– Scenography construction: Odeón Decorados Workshop.

Teatro Real participates for the third time in the Cavalcade of Kings organized by the Madrid City Council, on this occasion, with a float that celebrates astrology and creativity at the service of the magic of opera.

The costumes, adapted for the occasion, come largely from the opera ‘Merlín’, by Isaac Albéniz, presented at the Teatro Real in May 2003. The children’s costumes were made especially for the Cavalcade, in which they will evoke the mysterious kingdoms of the stars and planets that make up the celestial universe, with touches of science fiction, as detailed by the institution in a statement.

With nearly 9,000 lights, the Real’s float, made by hand by various artists from the Theatre, is a space that shelters all the fantasy and imagination of the famous magician’s adventures. Children and young people will parade on the float, accompanied by the delegation of Theater employees, all dressed in the tunics, suits and breastplates used by the great choir in the opera ‘Merlin’ in 2003.

The Theater has decided to join in with this production to follow one of the leitmotifs of this year’s parade: the sciences, discoveries and wonders of the universe personified in the astrologer Melchor, the alchemist Gaspar and the botanist Baltasar. The Real has chosen astrology and everything that represents the magician Merlin and alchemy.

Teatro Real’s one is one of the seven floats that will parade this year. With 16 meters long by 5.80 meters high, it simulates a theater stage (with its entrance, curtains and wings) and has been built from the transformation of a trailer truck like those usually used for transport and storage of the scenery, props and costumes for the operas.
