A spectacular display of music and light will make its way to Miami Beach on December 1st, taking over three iconic locations to turn up the holiday cheer.
The festive experience, named the Miami Beach Holiday Festival of Lights, is presented by the Miami Beach Classical Music Festival and features a breathtaking display of live performances and cutting-edge projection mapping technology that will illuminate these building façades with vibrant imagery.
During each of the awe-inspiring performances, projections will play off the buildings’ various shapes and textures in perfect unison with the rhythm of the music.
“These performances will transport viewers into a world of mesmerizing visuals and live music, creating a unique experience for audiences of all ages,” said Michael Rossi, MMF founder and artistic director. “We can’t wait to share it with our community and visitors alike.”
Miami Beach Holiday Festival of Lights is set to take over the following locations:
- December 1 & 2: Lincoln Road’s Euclid Oval – Expect beloved holiday characters, including Santa Claus, the Grinch and Elsa; snow for kids to play with; a live orchestra and more.
- December 15 & 16: The Gabriel South Beach – Watch in awe as the projection mapping visuals span the hotel.
- December 22 & 23: The Betsy Hotel – Enjoy a captivating holiday show featuring a blend of music, lights and project mapping.
Performances at all three locations will take place at 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 p.m.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Miami Beach Classical Music Festival is South Florida’s first immersive symphony and opera experience, as well as the first theatre company to implement 360-degree projection mapping technology in a live performance. Previous project-mapping performances include a Valentine’s Day performance at the Betsy Hotel and several summertime performances at the Faena Forum as part of MMF’s annual six-week summer festival.
The Miami Beach Holiday Festival of Lights will take place over three weekends from December 1 through December 23. It will be free and open to the public.
