A Christmas Carol - English National Opera

Taken on a magical and transformational journey by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future the cold-hearted miser, Scrooge becomes a changed man overnight.

A new staging with the orchestra and chorus of the English national Opera and the London Musical Theatre Orchestra brings this fabulous re-telling of Charles Dickens’ heart-warming tale of redemption and the true spirit of Christmas to the London Coliseum stage.

This production has an extraordinary Broadway team behind it. The music is by four-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Pocahontas), original choreography from five-time Tony Award-winner Susan Stroman (The Producers, Crazy For You), with lyrics by Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical) and book by Mike Ockrent (Crazy For You, Me and My Girl).

It’s Christmas cake, plum pudding AND trifle, all rolled into one. We are simply overwhelmed, what with poltergeists, the magic carpets, the angel wings and the (brilliant) puppetry
- The Times

Phelim McDermott’s production is full of invention, with neat puppetry and plenty of cheeky, lo-fi vibrancy
- Evening Standard

It sheds fresh light on Dickens’ classic

The return of the charismatic, hilarious Jim Broadbent is as good a Christmas present as Theatreland could hope for.
