Terra Natura recreates the story of Pocahontas in a spectacular musical. The story tells of the remarkable relationship that the Powhatan tribe maintained with animals and nature.
The theme park Terra Natura in Benidorm presents a musical based on the real life story of Matoaka traditionally known as Pocahontas. The musical relates the adventures of this historical person and the Powhatan Tribe that survived hunting, fishing and cultivating the land. The actors will try to portray the strong relationship that this tribe had with animals and nature.
The musical is directed towards children trying to instil the values of respect and care towards other living beings and our environment. Children participate directly in the play and learn songs from the story. The actors interact with the public throughout the performance making them part of the show.
The stage is set with two tepees and the musical is performed twice a day during the week, once in the morning and once in the afternoon in the Amphitheatre in the Asia area until the 11th of September 2011. Each performance lasts approximately 30 minutes and includes various animals such as raccoons and eagles.
The musical has been created by Luis Mendes especially for Terra Nature. The composer has written many songs throughout his career, some for famous Spanish singers such as Tamara and Rosa.
This musical is one of the many new additions to the park for the spring and summer seasons. Also included is a Wild West Horse show, which shows how riding has evolved over the centuries. There is also a puppet show for the younger visitors and street artists “Pangehistoricos” as well as the Sea Lions show.
