This radical new take on the classic Christmas tale follows a Victorian family as they prepare a toy theatre for their annual performance of “A Christmas Carol.”
This animated version seeks both to exhume the original story's gritty commentary on social inequality and the corrupting influence of greed, and to breathe new life into the lyricism of the original text by setting its scenes to extraordinary tableaux of modern dance. A Victorian family prepare a toy theatre for their annual performance of ‘A Christmas Carol’ when the audience enters the imagination of one of the children as the cardboard stage transforms into a magical world. The familiar characters are voiced by Carey Mulligan, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Simon Russell Beale and Andy Serkis. The magnificent choreography is courtesy of Russell Maliphant.
