The Seville Aquarium today hosted one of the most anticipated milestones of the city’s Christmas event, organized by the Seville City Council together with private companies, companies and local creators with more than a hundred performances under the slogan ‘This Christmas, Seville lights up’. Promoted with more activities. Which includes traditional music concerts, special lighting shows, parades, cultural offerings and family entertainment. This is the Concerto à Tempo d’Umour, composed by the Orthemis Orchestra, held in two performances at 12:00 and 19:00, and whose free tickets are sold out a few days in advance.
Concerto a tempo d’amour is a show in which twelve string musicians and an orchestra conductor express themselves in a comic and musical language with a soundtrack composed of very famous pieces by great classical composers. It is gesture theater with plenty of humour, where power struggles, misunderstandings and indiscipline take center stage and come together in perfect harmony.
The Seville Aquarium is one of the main sponsors of the Christmas program designed by the City Council and hosts a variety of other activities during these special dates mainly aimed at children and families. In this way, it offers the possibility to enjoy “A Christmas Ocean”, where the true spirit of Christmas is the preservation of the ocean. Those interested can visit “La Casa del Oceano” and meet the animals that will remind you it’s Christmas. In addition, there will be letters for the three kings of the sea and visits from Santa Claus or the Royal Sailor Postman, as well as workshops for the little ones or shark courses for boys and girls. The theatrical production for families about the voyage of Magellan and Elcano “A Bordeaux de la Victoria” is also back, with a show designed for all ages.
This Friday was also held the intercultural music concert ‘Banda Antropolopes: Carols for a New Year in the Macarena’, a project that developed an inter-generational process of collective creation in the Macarena district with the aim of expressing different cultural visions of Christmas. The key’s – or annual change of cycle – centers around pieces of remixed music composed for the occasion. The initiative is created by Talleres Antropolupes, with the idea and direction of Ruben Alonso, Victoria Browse, Hebe Kibooms and Francisco Torres. It has been developed in collaboration with children and neighbors of the Macarena district at Colegio San José Obrero.
