Rosebery Avenue, London, EC1R

The 2019 hit production has been amplified for Sadler’s Wells stage this Christmas.

Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story, Arthur Pita presents a beautiful recreation of The Little Match Girl through dance, song and Frank Moon’s live atmospheric music. Perfect for the whole family this festive season.

On an icy cold Christmas Eve in an imaginary Italian town, the little match girl wanders the streets with just one final match to keep her warm. Journey with her as she encounters good and bad in an endlessly imaginative world.

Performances will be in strict compliance with UK Government guidance. More information can be found here.
