The Christmas story about the stingy Ebenezer Scrooge is one of Charles Dickens’ most popular stories. It was put up every Christmas in Stockholm for much of the 80s and 90s and seven years ago brought the tradition back to life when Pernilla Isedal put up the classic story with new management. Her version of “A Christmas Carol” is a genuine English musical theater version of British actors and singers in the roles and several child actors.
