GreenMatthews present - A Christmas Carol: A Folk opera

GreenMatthews bring you a brand-new retelling of the best-loved Yuletide adventure of them all – Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.


Using brand-new lyrics set to traditional English folk and carol melodies, GreenMatthews (with special guest Jude Rees of Pilgrims' Way) use a bewitching blend of voices and instruments to create a musical retelling of this seasonal favourite. The first half of the show presents a blend of Victorian carols and midwinter folk songs, painting a colourful picture of the festive season in Dickens’ time. The second half is an hour-long ‘folk opera’ of his most iconic novella – the tale of how flinty-hearted miser Ebenezer Scrooge undergoes several ghostly visitations over the course of a cold and bitter Christmas Eve and awakes the following morning transformed into the epitome of the Christmas spirit. The perfect show for anyone looking to recapture the simple Yuletide delights of fellowship, laughter and good cheer!
