THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL - In Concert

About

Susie Benchasil Seiter, conductor
San Diego Symphony Orchestra

This December, the San Diego Symphony presents Disney’s The Muppet Christmas Carol Live to Concert. The Muppets perform the classic Charles Dickens holiday tale onscreen, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Gonzo, as Charles Dickens, narrates the story with the help of Rizzo the Rat. The film also features Miss Piggy as Emily Cratchit, Fozzie Bear as Fozziwig, and Robin the Frog as Tiny Tim. Scrooge receives visits from spirits of three Christmases – past, present and future. They show him the error of his self-serving ways, but the miserable old man seems to be past any hope of redemption and happiness. Original score composed by Miles Goodman (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Little Shop of Horrors) with songs by Oscar®, Emmy® and Grammy®-winning songwriter Paul Williams (“Rainbow Connection,” “Evergreen”).

NOTE: Gates will open at 4pm for this 5pm concert.
