Madonna embarqued on her fifth concert tour in June 2001, eight years after The Girlie Show. The hiatus marked some major changes in Madonna’s personal life: she was now a mother of two, married to a British film director. As an artist, she won a Golden Globe for her role in Evita, and released two of the most critically and commercially successfull album of her career: Ray of Light and Music.
To create the Drowned World Tour Madonna teamed up with director Jaimie King, marking the start of a long collaboration and the debut of a format that lasted until the Sticky & Sweet tour. The show visited five European countries before heading to the USA where it stopped in twelve different cities.
Over a decade MadonnaTribe had the chance to talk to many talented artists who contributed to the Drowned World Tour. Through the words and the memories of the show director Jamie King, light designer Peter Morse, stage designer Bruce Rodgers, backdrop video director Dago Gonzalez, choreographer Alex Magno and dancer Jull Weber, let’s relieve the magic of the story of a woman who traded fame for love.
