Ballet is one of the most exciting and amazing shows that exist. Emotion on the surface of the skin to see the dancers adopt steps and positions that seem impossible in a human body. If you are passionate about ballet, you cannot miss the tour that the International Ballet Company of Moldova, created by the award-winning soloists Cristina and Alexei Terentiev. She has traveled through various Catalan towns and on January 8 she will stop at Rubí, where she will perform the emblematic works Swan Lake and The Nutcracker. The group includes solo dancers from Moldova, Italy and other countries and brings to life well-known classical ballet choreographies and scores with refined technique and excellent interpretation.

Swan Lake is a master piece by Tchaikovsky that narrates the eternal legend of how Prince Siegfried is in love with the beautiful princess Odette, who is bewitched by an evil sorcerer who turns her into a swan-woman. The force of love that young people feel will free them from all curses.

The Nutcracker is a work also with music by Tchaikovsky that tells the story of Clara and her Nutcracker doll that she receives as a Christmas present. When everyone sleeps, they will live an unforgettable night, full of adventures and very beautiful characters.

Unlimited Barcelona is possibly the best viewpoint in Barcelona. This space is located on the 22nd floor of the emblematic Torre Urquinaona, a building built between 1968 and 1970 by the architect Antoni Bonet. The construction rises on an octagonal plan that takes advantage of all the available space of the chamfer. It is because of its centrality, height and its large windows that it offers unique views of the city. Enjoy them with the 50% discount on tickets brought to you by Club Vanguardia.

How many times have we heard the expression “He is like the dog in the manger, who neither eats nor lets eat”. Well, the wise popular culture took the expression from the play El Perro del Hortelano, by Lope de Vega. The palatial comedy that we bring you is directed by Paco Mir, from Tricicle in a surprising adaptation, shorter than the original and which develops a very contemporary second plot. Two technicians from the company that interprets El Perro del Hortelano realize an error that has led the rest of the company to Lugo to interpret Divinas Palabras. These two technicians are committed to taking the maxim "the show must go on" to its ultimate consequences and will stage the play with the help of two local actresses. A function that does not lose the humor of the original and that, thanks to the subplot, clearly explains Diana and Teodoro's entanglements. Experience it at the Teatre Poliorama in Barcelona with a 25% discount on tickets or a 4x3 buying 4 tickets with Club Vanguardia.

Futuroscope has not stopped reinventing itself since its inception. The big novelty this year is “Tornado Hunters”, unique in the world, which will make visitors feel trapped by a tornado. But the park offers many other attractions, among them "Objective Mars", the first Futuroscope rail coaster, a space training to go to Mars and in which you go from 0 to 55Km/h in 3 seconds. Or "The Extraordinary Trip", with which you can plan on the 5 continents, an attraction chosen as a favorite attraction for visitors and chosen as the best attraction in Europe in 2017. Although if you prefer something more quiet, you can also choose to have a drink at the Aerobar, at 35 meters high. The Club Vanguardia offers you a €12 discount on 2-day tickets or a €6 discount on 1-day tickets.

Christmas is not Christmas without a visit to the emblematic Christmas markets that are spread out in various parts of Barcelona and many other locations. The most emblematic of all, due to its age and symbolism, is the Fira de Santa Llúcia in Plaça de la Catedral. It is the oldest fair dedicated to the world of the nativity scene and Christmas traditions, whose first edition dates back to 1786. Another much-loved market in Barcelona is the Fira de Nadal de la Sagrada Família, where you will find everything to decorate and enjoy from the house for Christmas: Christmas trees; nativity scenes and everything to set them up; handmade gifts to share with the family and even food.

From December 8 to 11, the city of Vic is transformed into a Medieval town with artisans, innkeepers, vendors and street shows at the Fira Medieval de Vic. A wide and varied offer of craft shops, sausages, cheeses, pastries, preserves and chocolates, among other products. There are also numerous places to eat and taverns and children's activities, music, dances, recreation of trades and street shows. A great way to go back in time and have a great time!
