* Charles Dickens' immortal tale here revels in a delightful adaptation for dance
Read more drama in three acts by Christopher Gable, distinguished choreographer, actor and former Royal Ballet star, who died in 1998.

* The work is laced with Carl Davis' sparkling Christmas music, which also requires the dancers to sing at various points.

* The featured company is the renowned Northern Ballet Theatre who here dance with infectious ebullience and vivacity.

"Superlatives abound in describing Northern Ballet Theatre's magnificent production of A Christmas Carol...sparkling choreography....the company is on top form ... This is ballet at its most accessible and while purists may disagree, the response of the enthusiastic audience was a joy." -- The Stage
