What: a musical on the water “Around the World for the New Year”
For the first time, sea animals, trapeze artists, acrobats, dancers, musicians, synchronized swimmers and figure skaters meet on one site. So the advertising phrases that this “show has no analogues in the world” is not an exaggeration in this case.
More than 100 artists take part in the show. The main stars are dolphins, sea lions, walrus and beautiful killer whales. During the performance, real miracles happen in the water, in the air, on stage and even on ice. The International Council of Wizards will also appear in the hall: Santa Claus (Russia), Santa Claus (USA, Australia, Brazil, Canada), Oji-san (Japan), Papa Noel (Spain) and Joulupukki (Finland). An incredible performance of animals, bright show numbers, musical hits, colorful decorations, designer costumes, 5D-effects and large-scale video projections – all this makes the musical one of the main events of New Year’s Moscow.

What: the play “The Snow Queen”
The production uses a pre-Soviet version of the fairy tale, not edited by censorship: thanks to it, Christmas psalms and angels returned to the performance. However, for modern children, who are more friends with gadgets than with books, are spoiled by the spectacularity of cinema and the availability of all the wonders of the world on a computer monitor, this performance is ideal.
Because it is here that the old fairy tale takes on a second wind with the latest technologies, stunning costumes, and music. Fairy-tale convention is so subtly combined with realism that it is easy to forget where you are – in the auditorium, or – in the Fairy’s garden, in the snow-covered tundra, in the palaces of the Snow Queen …
