Theatrical Performance: “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens (Bilbao, Spain)
In December, an adaptation of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, the man who invented Christmas, was performed at the Espacio Luzarra.
The idea was to bring to the public this work that contains a great knowledge of the human being. This is his story par excellence, since Dickens continued writing stories for four more years, but people tended to only read this one.
In this work, Dickens is able to transform a greedy and angry-with-the-world man into a generous and cheerful being. Thanks to the visit of a ghost and three spirits, the character manages to reconcile with others and with himself.
The wonderful thing about Dickens is that he awakens minds, touches people’s hearts and captures their yearnings. He analyzes the world in which he lives and wants to change it. He has done more for the poor than all the sermons.
Great literature makes us deeply reflect. So, from their modest platform, the volunteers of the Espacio Luzarra wanted to contribute to the transmission of this great little work which, although written in 1843, has lost none of its power.
