A Christmas classic: art, delicacy and precision! 

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, published originally in English in 1843, narrates the story of a stingy and selfish man with apparently permanent scars (Mr Ebenezer Scrooge) and his surprising turnaround after a series of visits from ghosts over the course of Christmas Eve. Written at the height of the Victorian era with a melancholic feeling about the past, Christmas and the values of sticking together against coveting, it enjoyed widespread popularity.  

With the idea of revealing the nuances of Dickens’ magisterial text, Albert Guinovart gives us an extremely beautiful and sensitive score, full of contrasts. Music at the service of the words spoken by all the characters in the story.  

Accompanying the musical action, the sand drawings of Borja González (Ytuquepintas Company) imbue the show with even greater poetry. On a handcrafted light table, in total synchrony with the music and the text, he models the illustrations with sand to evoke the different scenes and the different characters in the story.
