Dear Warsaw In Your Pocket readers!

Time passes so quickly that we might have not noticed that the end of the year is almost here. At this special time when we say good bye to the old year and welcome in 2015, I will be more than happy to share with you some suggestions.

THEATRE AND OPERA

The Warsaw Chamber Opera and the Warsaw Philharmonic offer a number of choices for fans of classical music this December and January. At some point during the next two months you will be able to hear an Antoni Bruckner Symphony, Dmitri Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto and Symphony No.4 while on December 20th the choir of Henryk Wojnarowski will perform a Special Christmas Concert. Jacek Kasprzyk will conduct the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and Warsaw Philharmonic Choir in a special concert for New Year’s Eve beginning at 7pm. In January 2015 in the repertoire of the Warsaw Philharmonic will perform the music of Fryderyk Chopin, Antoni Dvorak and Felix Mendelssohn.

The Warsaw National Opera will present Verdi’s Nabucco, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by Tchaikovsky, a New Year’s Gala conducted by Andriy Yurkevych, Beethoven’s Hamletand Oniegin by Tchaikovsky.

MUSIC/CONCERTS

For lovers of Pop music or metal sounds I have some options:
Selah Sue will perform on the 8th and Joey Badass on the 12th of December at Proxima Club, while the South African Seether band will perform on the 3rd in Progresja Club.

SPECIAL EVENTS

There will be a ‘Labyrinth of Light’ at Wilanów Palace in the south of the city which be open to visitors from December 6 to March 15. The ‘Labyrinth’ is a light installation using around 150,000 coloured lights arranged on 1,000 square meters of the beautiful palace gardens. Inspired by Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" this is the perfect place to take your friends to experience a magical and atmospheric world.

Every year as the clock nears midnight on December 31st Warsaw becomes a city of fireworks welcoming the New Year. The highest bar in Europe, the Panorama Bar, can be found at the Warsaw Marriott Hotel and guarantees that you will enter 2015 in real style. If you like to travel back in time to the 70s and 80s then the Marriott’s Grand Ballroom is the place for you while Warsaw has plenty more to offer on this special day. Many night clubs including Platinium, Foksal XVII, De LITE, as well as many restaurants and bars will be hosting special events to help you celebrate the evening.

If you are taking a walk around the Old Town you must visit the crib in the church of the Capuchin Friars in Miodowa street. The recreation of the nativity scene is an unique tradition which has been preserved in Poland for many centuries.

Please do not forget that my colleagues from the Golden Keys Association and I will be delighted to help you to have a wonderful time in our city and on behalf of us all I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.

    Great article. As a frequent guest at the Hotel Bristol I can personally vouch for the importance of a good concierge staff. I can also vouch for the GREAT concierge staff at the leMeridien Bristol! Mr. Biales and his staff are, perhaps, the most competant concierge staff in the city. No request is too big or too small. They make things happen when it seems impossible. You picked the cream of the crop, inyourpocket, when you went to the Bristol concierge staff for answers!
