The Lightning of Christmas lights will take place on November 26 from 6 p.m.
‘Covinal’ by Sol Picó will precede The Lightning of Christmas lights in Barcelona

The theatre company Sol Picó will turn on the Christmas lights

The city will be lit up on November 26 with a show about family reunions during the holidays.

This year, the pandemic has left us with an atypical Christmas, and family reunions may not be as we have always celebrated. The show ‘Covinal’ by the theatre company Sol Picó will talk about these meetings in an event that will give way to the Lighting of the Christmas lights in Barcelona on November 26, talking about the situation we have all experienced this 2020 and, at the same time, sending a message of hope and vitality. It will have 15 performers, 9 dancers and 6 musicians who will move along the facades of the Plaza Comercial (El Born Centre de Cultura i Memòria) from 6 p.m. The city lights will be lit every day from 5.30 p.m. until January 7.

‘Covinal’, which plays with the words ‘covid-19’ and ‘Nadal’ (Christmas), wants to pay tribute to the citizens, especially to all the professionals who have been at the forefront, to those who have been alone, old and young, and to those who closed the shutter with the insecurity of when they would open it again. The choreographer Sol Picó directs this show, which also wants to give us hope that everything will go well and open our eyes to how short and unpredictable life is.

You will be able to follow the show from home on betevé and, if the restrictions allow it, a limited capacity will also be enabled to follow it live. If possible, registration will open on the City Council’s Christmas website on November 24.
