Charles Dickens' famous Christmas story 'A Christmas Carol' was adapted into a ballet in 1992 by composer Carl Davis. This story, in which the old man Scrooge changes overnight from a selfish person to a loving benefactor, is timeless.
The Dutch Don't Dance Division knows better than any other company in the world how to give this ballet its own character. Not a traditional British interpretation, but The Hague and Scheveningen from the beginning of the last century play an important role in 'A Christmas Carol'. The great success from 2019 by choreographers Rinus Sprong and Thom Stuart finally returns after 3 years, in the brand new theater'Amare' in The Hague. The festive score by Carl Davis mixes classical music with traditional Christmas Carols, played by the Residentie Orkest.
A winter production that will warm everyone's heart!
