Director and choreographer Arthur Pita has a reputation for his surreal take on storytelling. Following his Björk Ballet, performed by San Francisco Ballet this summer, the Lilian Baylis Studio plays host to his magical dance theatre show, The Little Match Girl.

Our unlikely heroine is an impoverished street girl, with just one final match to keep her warm on a cold Christmas Eve.

Beautifully recreated through dance, song and Frank Moon’s live atmospheric music, The Little Match Girl is a timeless fable about kindness and helping others.

★★★★ "Charmingly eccentric and marvellously magical. Adults will be enchanted too"
