This adaptation of one of Charles Dickens’ most famous stories gets the full Broadway treatment by the Broadway team of Alan Menken, Lynn Ahrens and Mike Ockrent. Called by The New York Times “a tonic for adults, and for children a transfixing journey,” A Christmas Carol is the warm-hearted kick-start to the Christmas week for all the family.
In keeping with the long term aim of the LMTO, the fully orchestrated concert aims to not only make orchestral performances accessible to brand new audiences, but also to bring the exciting repertoire of musical theatre to a more classical audience.
