The Théâtre des Muses invites you to a special New Year’s Eve performance at 10:15 pm! On the bill are Les Vilaines, combining theatre and music in the glamorous world of Cabaret. After the countdown to midnight, spectators will receive a glass of champagne, after which they will be able to dance on the stage. The Theatre invites participants to bring “some victuals”, such as mandarins, panettone, savoury canapés or chocolate cake,”to get the year off to a sharing start.”
