Before New Year’s Eve the capital’s pace becomes even more feverish. It is so difficult to make time for everything! For seeing how Christmas is celebrated in Europe… But Moscow is a city of miracles, and we can fulfil this dream without booking a flight or a railway ticket. All we need to do is to come to the most European place of Russia, to the Catholic Cathedral on Malaya Gruzinskaya street.

……………………………………………

Freddy Cadena’s Festival Orchestra will shower you with confetti of joyful musical notes and take you to the merry Christmas fuss of ancient and beautiful European cities. Excellent opera soloists, Jury Bashet’s musicians,  selected repertoire. It is not often that elitarian classical music is offered in such a big way – only on feast days.

At Christmas in Europe we can join hands and dance around the church, as the Spaniards do, or give friends clover in a pot, according to a German tradition, or lit a candle on the ceiling for solitary travellers, as the Danes, educated by Andersen’s fairy tales, do. But the main thing that unites the whole Europe and the whole world at the feast is goodness and belife in miracles!
