Oceanogràfic Christmas lights: show tickets, dates and times

The opening ceremony took place last night

After a resounding success in its first two editions at the Madrid Botanical Garden, the Oceanogràfic de València is hosting a surprising immersive light and sensorial arts event in a natural environment this Thursday . The unique ‘ Naturaleza Encendida ‘.

From November 25th, 2021 to January 16, 2022, millions of points of light and video projections will illuminate the different outdoor spaces of the largest aquarium in Europe in an incredible and unique experience full of magic and fun.

‘Naturaleza Encendida’ is a concept created by the show producer LETSGO, responsible for works of great international success such as’ Ghost ‘,’ La Familia Addams’, ‘Dirty Dancing’, the saga ‘The Hole’ or events such as’ Abre Madrid ‘and leisure proposals such as’ Espacio Ibercaja Delicias en Madrid’. The production company received in September 2020 the ‘Innovation and sustainability’ award granted by the Madrid City Council on the occasion of World Tourism Day.

The Aquatic exhibition

The project arrives in Valencia in its Aquatic version, an immersive family experience that reinvents Christmas lights . An exciting journey of magical projections and light that will immerse the visitor in a world of aquatic fantasy. Aquatic is the only exhibition in which the public will feel part of the cycle that connects everything.

In this edition, water becomes the centre of the creative concept. This element, like people, can go through different states or phases. Each phase involves a state and learning process that are represented in a total of nineteen facilities.

The 1 km walk will be illuminated by a million LED lights and videomapping . The exhibition will feature 300 moving lights linked by more than thirty kilometres of wiring, involving twenty video projectors; two tunnels; an incredible soundtrack that will accompany the facilities and even the Calatrava buildings will be lit up.

A sea of ​​LEDs, which will cross the Oceanogràfic garden, immersing you in a “true story”; even some snowflakes will fall, turning it into a snowy garden. Beams of light and water, which will project light from the dome of the building as if it were a huge geyser in the middle of the night. All will be on offer during the Christmas season in the city. Right now, there are already more than fifty thousand tickets sold for this edition even before its opening.

Entrance fees to the Oceanogràfic

‘Naturaleza Encendida’ will open in Valencia from November 25th, 2021 to January 16th, 2022, from Wednesday to Sunday from 6:30 p.m. to 00: 00h . with passes every 15 minutes. Tickets are already on sale with prices from € 9.50 through the web.

Tickets will be available by admission times, so that each visitor can enjoy a quiet walk without crowds. 

The success of the activity in Madrid in the past editions caused the tickets to be sold out, so the organization recommends buying the tickets in advance.
