Live music or Theater over Christmas and New Years?

Jump to last reply

Sadly, I just discovered that the NYC Rockettes stop performing January 2nd, 5 days before I'm back in the states. On the bright side, now I have that money I've set aside for something else. I usually try to go to one professional production per trip and I was hoping for a seasonal theme.

So, I'm in Munich right before Christmas, Venice, for Christmas, Rome for New Years, and London starting New Years Day. I like Ballet, but I'm not sure if I want to see the Nutcracker yet again. Any thoughts on the Royal Ballet's Sleeping Beauty? Are pantos too child oriented to enjoy? I've looked through the west end's listings for my dates, and I'm not familiar with a lot of the performances, so any suggestions on that front would be welcome.

Theater wise- I like comedy, mystery, musicals. I love Shakespeare adaptations but I generally go to his comedies as I don't enjoy sitting through hours of death scenes and monologues. So a happy ending is preferred but I have enjoyed opera, so it's not strictly necessary.

I enjoy music- although mostly voice- I'm not that into classical. I was thinking that it would be fun to go to a holiday concert in Italy, though, if anyone has favorites there. If it's familiar Christmas music, I don't mind if it's in another language.

Thanks for any suggestions!
