Celebrated director & choreographer Arthur Pita brings his new magical dance theatre show The Little Match Girl to Guangzhou Opera House from August 16 to 18. Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story, this touching tale of an impoverished young street girl’s hopes and dreams is beautifully told through dance, song and original live music.
A snowy stage sets the scene for an icy cold winter’s eve, where the little match girl paces the emptying streets, shivering and desperate, trying to sell her matches. Cold, hungry and with just one final match flame to keep her warm, she sees a vision of her beloved grandmother. Leaving her troubled life behind, the little match girl is guided up into the night sky by her grandmother who takes her to the moon. Now, on a clear night, if you look closely, you might see the light of a shooting star, or is it a match burning brightly?
