Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival 2009

Carnaval Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2009 Ana María Tavárez Mata

Carnaval Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2009 was Ana María Tavárez Mata, with a costume entitled "Embrujada" (Bewitched) designed by Leo Martínez and representing newspaper El Día.

In 2009, the court was made up as follows:

  1. 1st Maid of Honour: Raquel de Ara Carballo, with a costume entitled "Vuelvo de La Guaira en correíllo cargada de loros stop besos Concha" (I return from La Guaira in a Correíllo loaded with parrots, stop, kisses Concha), representing Centro Comercial Santa Cruz Carrefour and designed by Santi Castro.
  2. 2nd Maid of Honour: Leonor Barreto Fuentes, with a costume entitled "Aria de amor" (Aria of love), representing Centro Comercial Meridiano and designed by Saliarca Creativos.
  3. 3rd Maid of Honour: Gisela Dorta Melo, with a costume entitled "This is for you, I love you, Thank you", representing Centro Comercial Alcampo - La Laguna and designed by Juan Carlos Armas.
  4. 4th Maid of Honour: Nuria Niebla Plasencia, with a costume entitled "Nirvana", representing Tranvía de Tenerife and designed by Santi Castro.
The theme of carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife was El cine de Terror (Horror Cinema). 

Known as "The Anti-crisis Carnival", the main stage at the The Tenerife International Centre for Trade Fairs and Congresses, was scaled back and completely flat, without sculpted or modelled elements of scenery. Its decoration was based on large format prints, with traditional motifs from the first horror movies. 

The Official Carnival song that year was "Chicharrero de Corazón", by the Murga Ni Pico Ni Corto, becoming the first song by a carnival group to be the official song for these fiestas, and which had a tremendous reception at the Gala of the Carnival Queen, being danced and sung by all the carnival troupes of Tenerife. The "Ave Satani" (satanic hymn from the horror movie The Omen, could be heard several times in the introduction to the gala.
