1- The Ice Circus
Both for adults and children, this unique show can only bring joy to you and your family during the holidays. You will get to see more than 30 artists from different countries tell a tale filled with magic while ice skating. The Ice Circus tells the story of an artist that lives in a lost garden and creates amazing sculptures, but that one day casts a spell that turns everything around him into ice, including himself.
Not only families will get to watch the show and find out how the spell is broken, but the audience will also have the chance to skate themselves and even pretend for a while that they are part of this magical story.
