The Little Match Girl
“Her little hands were almost numbed with cold.
Oh! a match might afford her a world of comfort, if she only dared take a single one out of the bundle, draw it against the wall, and warm her fingers by it.
She drew one out.
“Rischt!” how it blazed, how it burnt!
It was a warm, bright flame, like a candle, as she held her hands over it: it was a wonderful light.”
London. The last evening of the year.
The snow is falling.
A little girl struggles fiercely through the dark streets.
In a vain attempt to stay warm she strikes a match, then a second and third.
In the fatal cold the flames blaze to life and the friendly flickering fire guides her to fantastic Christmas visions.
With each strike we are transported into her tumultuous hopes and dreams.
In this magic, humorous and poignant show, The Last Baguette use physical comedy, live music and visual storytelling to shine a light on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic winter tale.
