Theatre and music on the agenda this Christmas at the Sala de Cultura (Cinema)

Saturday 11 December: La Fornal d'Espectacles regales Formentera with "Tina, la bruixa fina", a funny musical for children 3 and up

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to report that next Saturday 11 December, crowds at Formentera's Sala de Cultura (Cinema) can enjoy "Tina, la bruixa fina", a musical puppet show starring a very clever witch who is dead set on learning the secrets of her craft. To do this, she has the help of her uncle, Tomassot, an older, experienced witch who makes balms for sick animals.

"Tina, la bruixa fina" is a poetic story about the youthful desire to fly and grow up, tempered with the voice of experience demanding prudence and learning. In addition to puppetry and songs, the family-friendly production incorporates black light theatre, shadow play, colourful costumes and excellent dramatic composition.

"Tina, la bruixa fina" is recommended for ages three and up. The show is directed by Xavier Company and features Marina Nicolás Domínguez, Joan Gomila Gayà and Albert Martínez Artiaga.

Formentera crowds can catch it from 6.00pm on Saturday 11 December at the Sala de Cultura (Cinema). Tickets are €4 and go on sale tomorrow, Friday 3 December at or at the box office thirty minutes before the show.

Sunday 12 December: Úrsula Pomar and Jota Hidalgo present Formentera with an evening of flute and piano

Next Sunday 12 December, crowds at Formentera's Sala de Cultura (Cinema) can enjoy an evening of flute and piano performances of C. P. E. Bach, Tchaikovsky, Liszt, Mozart and more from two musicians who crossed paths as teachers at the School of Music and Dance of Formentera (Escola de Música i Dansa de Formentera, EMDF): EMDF director and teacher Úrsula Pomar and former local teacher José Jaime Hidalgo.

Pomar and Hidalgo are two classically trained artists who exude virtuosity and passion for their instruments.

Pomar is a young flautist from Sóller (Mallorca) who peers place among the most promising flute players today. She has been admitted to several masters and postgraduate programmes to work with the most prestigious flutists in the world. She is also a member of the Jove Orquestra Nacional de Catalunya. She currently combines her career as a soloist with her position as director of the EMDF, where she teaches the flute.

Valencian José Jaime Hidalgo began his extensive artistic career as a operatic and ballet pianist at a very young age. His work as an improviser, composer and educator also stands out. A national concert pianist, he has also played in Paris, and his work as an opera repertoire player has taken him to Italian and Spanish theatres like Teatro di Roma, La Fenice in Venice, Palacio de las Artes in Valencia, Ópera de Tenerife and more.

Formentera crowds can catch it from 8.30pm on Saturday 12 December at the Sala de Cultura (Cinema). Tickets cost €7 (€5 for under 25s) and go on sale from tomorrow, Friday 3 December, at or at the box office half an hour before the show.

Tickets to both functions will be free for unemployed people and under-employed freelancers. Current health and safety protocol will be enforced.
