Parma Italian Capital of Culture 2020+21 is ready to celebrate the new year with a special event on December 31 from 9pm: over 4 hours, in streaming and on tv, with theatre performances and music.
Although the sanitary emergency forced us to rearrange the Christmas calendar of events, Parma wants to stay close to culture lovers and give them a special night, a careless and entertaining moment.
High level cultural proposals featuring many artists will come directly to your home from venues that are symbols of the city, as the Regio theatre, the Auditorium Paganini and Teatro Due.
The event will be live streaming on the official socials of Parma 2020+21 and on 12 TV Parma, in partnership with GazzettadiParma. The show is part of Parma Italian Capital of Culture 2020+21 program, and it’s possible with the support of the Municipality of Parma, MiBACT and Emilia-Romagna region, in collaboration with Teatro Regio di Parma, Teatro Due Parma and LaToscanini. Main sponsor of the event is Enel.
