The Little Match Girl — Arthur Pita

 

To book for The Little March Girl 2016 performances click here.

Following a sell-out season last year, celebrated director and choreographer Arthur Pita returns to the Lilian Baylis Studio this Christmas with his magical dance theatre show, The Little Match Girl.

Based on Hans Christian Andersen's classic story, this touching tale of an impoverished young street girl's hopes and dreams is beautifully told through dance, song and original music performed live on stage.

★★★★★ "Magical. Wonderfully inventive. A gem"
THE OBSERVER

A snowy stage sets the scene for an icy cold Christmas Eve. Pacing the darkening streets with just one final match flame to keep her warm, the little match girl sees a vision of her beloved Grandmother, who guides her up into the night sky, to the shining moon. Now, on a clear night, if you look closely, you might see the light of a shooting star, or is it a match burning brightly?

★★★★★ "Perfectly spell-binding. An utter delight!"
