Dickens’ A Christmas Carol with British Masterstoryteller Ashley Ramsden
Accompanied by The Plumpudding Singers
Can Christmas start without Ashley Ramsden performing Dickens' all time seasonal story A CHRISTMAS CAROL? By now we have to conclude it can NOT!
For the 12th year in a row Ashley Ramsden returns with this still so relevant story about greed, poverty, insights, dreams and redemption. Can we still learn from this wise tale? Is it possible in this world that seems to be more divided than ever to share, live together and listen to one another? The gap between haves and have-nots seems to widen. And the difference in what is true and not-true (anymore) is no longer distinguishable. This story brings it all down to the essence that by sharing and considering the other we can only gain. A wonderful way to start the season of good will! Let's share it!
The Plumpudding Singers
This four-part choir accompanies the performance and sings a cappella Christmas carols. The Plumpudding Singers originate from the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. It is a choir that only performs during the winterseason accompanying this performance and in The Koninklijke Schouwburg in The Hague.
