Well, it’s that time of year again! This is my last post of 2016 so I just wanted to wish you all a very merry Christmas for Sunday and a very Happy New Year when it comes! And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, then I hope you enjoy the happy vibes at this time of year. Be good to each other and I hope 2017 is your best year yet! There is still time to leave your mark on 2016 as well so why not get out there and do something memorable?
My next post will be on Wednesday, January 4th. Events can still be added to the calendar, as usual, through the Submit Your Event section in the meantime.
Anyway, down to the latest update on what’s happening in Bermuda. Check out all your NYE options on the Calendar here or see the Quick Recap at the end of the post for a handy list (keep your eye on the calendar itself for submissions made after this post is published). As always, this post includes an update on everything added to the calendar since the previous week, while the Quick Recap Section at the bottom of the post is a full listing of all upcoming events, including those previously covered in previous posts.
Hope to see lots of you on Elbow Beach with your Santa hats on!
Keep the Christmas magic going beyond the day itself at BUEI Films presents The Royal Ballet’s The Nutcracker on Thursday, December 29th at 5pm
The screening will be at 5pm in the Tradewinds Auditorium. In Peter Wright’s classic production for The Royal Ballet, the stage sparkles with theatrical magic – a Christmas tree grows before our eyes, toy soldiers come to life to fight the villainous Mouse King and Clara and the Nutcracker are whisked off to the Kingdom of Sweets on a golden sleigh. Tchaikovsky’s score contains some of ballet’s best-known melodies, from the flurrying Waltz of the Snowflakes to the dream-like Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy – all brilliantly set in Wright’s choreography. The running time is 135 minutes with one interval.
This production features Bermuda’s own Ravi Cannonier-Watson – come and meet Ravi at this special event!
The cost is $20 for BUEI members, $25 for non-members and $10 for students. Part proceeds to help with Ravi’s school expenses at The Royal Ballet.
