How can you possibly resist the magic of this show? This really is a dream family outing at Christmas time. To be seen over and over again! He is a mischievous magician with lavish luggage who handles humour and derision with rare finesse. She is an exquisite acrobat and dancer adorned with her magical costumes, who plunges into one astonishing transformation after another. These two great artists open the gateway to dreams, right there, in front of our entranced eyes; releasing outlandish creatures, disconnecting our perception of time and creating unforgettable and fantastic visual displays: a ballet of red umbrellas, teapots that turn into dragons, tamed unicorns…..
With timeless poetry, the duo of Jean-Baptiste Thierée and Victoria Chaplin return to enchant the audience here in Nice with their whirlwind of humorous, gentle and inventive numbers….not to mention the thousand or so stage decors that make up their magical world. The international renown of this little theatre gem makes it an end of year treasure that simply has to be savoured.

This is one of those shows that defy classification – dreamlike and wonderful – one that relieves us of the weight of the daily grind. Pure joy for everyone. Le Monde
