On Stage

2016 Major Production: A Christmas Carol

Charles Dickens’s much-loved story comes to life on the opera stage thanks to Christchurch composer Philip Norman.


With a cast of over seventy, including children and dancers, this is the most ambitious production Opera Otago has mounted for several years. The opera is a faithful telling of the great story of Scrooge the miser and his journey to a realization of what Christmas is about. We meet the scary ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future. We meet the Cratchit family including the famous Tiny Tim. We hear Philip Norman’s tuneful music, and we all get to sing some Christmas carols!
