Compagnia dell'Alba presents
A Christmas Carol with Roberto Ciufoli as Ebenezer Scrooge
It's Christmas Eve, in London in 1843, and everyone is going to celebrate the anniversary. Only the old usurer Ebenezer Scrooge, bears this feast badly. After having badly hunted three men who ask him for a contribution for the needy, Scrooge, having closed the shop, goes alone to his home. During dinner before going to bed, he receives a visit from the spirit of Jacob Marley, his old partner, who died seven years earlier on Christmas Eve. Marley's spirit is wrapped in heavy chains whose ends hang down
of coffers: chains that are a consequence of greed and selfishness perpetrated while he was alive. Scrooge, scared,
asks the old partner how to avoid the same fate and Marley reveals that he is still in time to change his destiny. Before leaving, he announced the immediate visit of three spirits: that of the past Christmas, that of the present Christmas and that of the future Christmas. The three ghosts, including flashbacks and premonitions will be able to change Scrooge's petty and selfish nature, which will awaken on Christmas morning with the knowledge that the greed of money and attachment to material things are wrong: finally charity and the brotherhood will make their way in the heart of the old usurer, who for the first time will spend Christmas with his nephew Fred and his family
