“Christmas Story” on the stage of the Hermitage Theater, in the framework of the project “Hermitage Evenings of the Mikhailovsky Theater”.

Ballet in 2 acts based on the tale of Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol in Prose: a Ghostly Tale of Christmas”.

The first full-length ballet by Ivan Vasilyev is based on the tale of Charles Dickens. On Christmas Eve Mr. Scrooge is visited by the three spirits of Christmas. They show the lonely and greedy old man his past, present and future. Scrooge understands that by exchanging the love and warmth of human communication for money, he made his life senseless. But on the magical holiday of Christmas, everything is possible, and the miser gets a chance to correct his mistakes.
