It just isn't quite Christmas without the Nutcracker, and with the Manila Hotel hosting a special presentation of The Nutcracker by Ballet Manila, the Philippines certainly know how to host a Christmas. Together with the lighting of the Christmas tree to be carried out by senior hotel staff, the Christmas season will get its unofficial kickoff starting December 15th.
The lighting of the Christmas Tree led by Manila Mayor Alfredo S. Lim, Manila Hotel president Atty. Joey Lina, and Manila Hotel executive vice president Enrique Y. Yap Jr., signaled the beginning of the festivity. Children from the House of Refuge joined the celebration and treated with fun games and activities. As part of its corporate social responsibility, Manila Hotel will also offer limited-edition The Nutcracker Cookie Jar wherein proceeds from the sales will be donated to the House of Refuge.
To complete the Nutcracker Christmas experience, Manila Hotel will present The Nutcracker by Ballet Manila featuring prima ballerina Lisa Macuja- Elizalde. The gala performance is on Dec. 15 at 6 p.m. at its grand lobby.
