Using Dickens original text, abridged and dramatised by playwright David Simpatico, and interspersed with traditional Christmas carols, this semi-staged performance directed by Martin Duncan will use an actor in the speaking role of Dickens/Scrooge, eight principal singers from Opera Holland Park singing all other roles and three musicians.
The abridged version of this new work will have its world premiere as part of the Opera Holland Park Christmas Carol concert on 7 December at St Columba’s church in Knightsbridge. The concert will also feature traditional and sacred music, providing an extraordinarily evocative and unique yuletide evening.
