ROCHESTER -- The Rochester Opera House will present two stunning special sneak preview performances of the 2017 National Touring company production of Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol in November.
The production, created in association with PerSeverance Productions and CMI Entertainment Inc., tells a powerful story of redemption as only A Christmas Carol can.
The holiday classic has enchanted audiences the world over with its simple message of Holiday joy. Ebenezer Scrooge, that most unrepentant and miserly of fellows, is made to see the light as he survives a merciless battery of revelations by the ghosts of his own life: Jacob Marley and the Christmas Spirits of Past, Present, and Future.
With script adaptation, direction, and what is being called a flawless performance as Scrooge by award-winning 40-year theater veteran Scott H. Severance, this new production fills the stage with first class professional actors, lush costumes, stunning sets and puppetry, song and dance, all laced with a heavy dose of humor and a timeless message.
With the music of 26 beloved traditional carols of the season woven throughout this classic tale, A Christmas Carol is the perfect way to begin your family holiday festivities.
