NACHO SANTOS, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR (the Magi)

The voice of Nacho Santos, the artistic director for the ‘cabalgata de Reyes’ (Twelfth Night procession) and the Christmas campaign in the City of Madrid, who pointed out that the structures of the floats which will transport the Magi are decorated with the wishes of 30,000 children and adults from Madrid and these were written in a “magic paper” for more than ten days.

The Magi  (los Reyes) already have their floats ready to tour the streets next Saturday in Madrid on a ride that will be inspired by the transforming power of the arts and all its disciplines.

In total, eight floats in addition to the three royal floats and a delegation of more than two thousand people belonging to four national and four international companies will make the traditional itinerary, which will begin at 6:60pm in the Plaza de San Juan de la Cruz, continue along the Paseo de la Castellana and the Paseo del Prado and end at Plaza de Cibeles at around 9pm.

Each float will light up in a different colour “at the pleasure of the Magi”: gold for Melchior, rose for Caspar and blue for Balthazar.

First, listen MP3 with the voice of Nacho Santos (January 3, 2019):

Then, read translation of the transcription while you’re listening MP3:

“This year the Magi have asked us that all the children and their families collaborate in the construction of the royal floats and for that we have asked them to write their letters in a magical paper, which will be lighted up in the Twelfth Night procession. As you can see in the background, we have the three floats exposed. The first one is illuminated, which will be for King Melchior. More than 30,000 people have passed through the Crystal Gallery to leave their letters on the float of their favourite king during the campaign”.

Repeat process many times as you need and answer test of comprehension and vocabulary.
