Legend of The Christmas Rose
Swedish Folk Tale
Liberty Theater Presents
The Legend of the Christmas Rose
Saturday, December 14, 2013 at 2:00 pm
This Christmas at the Liberty Theatre come and see the magic of The Legend of the Christmas Rose by Selma Lagerlof. The Liberty Theatre Players and dancers from Astoria School of Ballet are combining their talents to bring this wonderful, imaginative and creative story to the stage with costumes, scenery, music and dance.
Thanks to a generous grant from Clatsop County Cultural Coalition the Liberty Theater will premier our first “commissioned piece” – a dance set to music for The Legend of the Christmas Rose. Margaret Wall has created and choreographed the dance numbers for this year’s production, which will be performed by Astoria School of Ballet dancers. (Margaret Wall is the Artistic Director and Owner of Astoria School of Ballet).
Legend of the Christmas Rose was first published in 1908 in Sweden, and is tale about a flower that only blooms in winter conditions. The story itself is taken from real-life people with folklore creating a legend. The seemingly simple tale is of a miracle that is revealed every Christmas Eve to an outlaw family who live in exile in the Goinge Forest. It has been adapted for our stage and is being directed by Sen Incavo.
The Liberty Theater presents this wonderful tale for your enjoyment during the Christmas Season. There is only one performance on December 14th at 2:00 pm. Tickets are now on sale at the Liberty Box Office.
