Based on the Oscar-winning film, PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT, is the most spectacular and fun international musical. It tells the adventures of three drag artists crossing the Australian desert aboard the bus that gives the musical its name, on a journey in search of love and friendship, and end up finding more than they could ever have dreamed of.

With 40 artists, an impressive collection of over 500 award-winning costumes, 200 extraordinary headpieces, and the most danced soundtrack in history – featuring the greatest disco hits, from Tina Turner to Madonna – PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT is the ultimate feel-good musical. Winner of the Oscars, Tony, Olivier, and more than 65 international awards, Priscilla has been performed in 135 cities, 30 countries, and has been danced by over 7 million people.

On the 30th anniversary of the film’s release and celebrating the 18th anniversary of the musical’s world premiere in Sydney, PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT, returns to Bilbao, where it already triumphed at the Aste Nagusia in 2017. So dust off your wigs and heels, practice your best dance moves, and cover yourself in as much glitter as you can find, because the unforgettable, iconic, fun, and legendary musical PRISCILLA… is back!
