Christmas in Barcelona
Plaza Cataluña will be one of the main Christmas stage this year where there will be light and sound shows, as well as different activities for the whole family. Elders and youngers can enjoy every day shows such as La Ballarina, who hides in a giant music box and goes out to dance with her tutu to the sound of the typical old music boxes that practically we all heard when we were little. There will also be performing the tap dancers known as Les Orelles, the Basque dancer Endika Salazar and the company Ponten Pie with its teather play Somnis’s hut where the guardians of the wishes will surprise the little ones.
At dusk the Twin Fountains of Plaça Catalunya will be illuminated and dancing to the rhythm of the original music composed by Xavi Oró, Eslástica and Seward. An original and very technological show with the water choreography of EDL Creative Water.
The kids can have a great time with the traditional Tió Gigante who will be giving gifts for everyone on Avenida de la Catedral, a fun show in which children are the main protagonists. The emblematic manger of the Plaza de Sant Jaume, will be every day from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.; This year Quim Domene and Toti Toronell have made a very original and innovative interpretation of the verses of the poet J.V. Foix to give the public a modern and different look at the magic of poetry.
To say goodbye to this year you can not miss the great pyrotechnic show that will take place on December 31st on the Avenida de la Reina Maria Cristina, with the National Palau as background and the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc. An event full of music, light, water and pyrotechnics organized by the company Pirotécnia Igual, which has become a tradition during the past years in Barcelona for its impressive staging.
