WONDERWORLD Ayala Malls and Pandora present The Nutcracker by Steps Dance Studio

The Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets
What hits a sweet spot among the headliners in this year’s holiday program at Ayala Malls is the fantastical staging of The Nutcracker by Steps Dance Studio, co-presented with Pandora.

LEGACY MAKERS Jaime Zobel de Ayala Sr. and Beatriz Zobel de Ayala

Few things signal the holiday season more than the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets and the Sugar Plum Fairy serving up a dazzling display of dances. It’s Christmas come to life on stage, which invites you to whisk yourself and all you love on a golden sleigh to a magical adventure in the wonderland of children, parents, fairies, toys, Christmas trees, glittering snowflakes and candy. Not to mention nutcrackers that, according to German legend, bring good luck and protection to a family and its home.

GRACE AND GLORY Bea Elizalde, Sofia Zobel-Elizalde, and Mia Borromeo

"My father and I both share the love of ballet. And from when I was very, very little, Christmas was not the same without The Nutcracker," muses Steps Dance Studio director Sofia Zobel-Elizalde. "All over the world, The Nutcracker conjures memories, it brings families together, and everyone gets to share the joy of the season."

The whimsical setting of The Nutcracker is complemented by dazzling charms from Pandora, which is setting up Christmas trees and vignettes featuring its latest holiday collection. Charms include snowflakes, reindeers, gingerbread houses, and more, all of which were intentionally curated to spread the message of togetherness, kindness, and love.
