The story goes as follows:

A miserable old man, Ebenezer Scrooge, hates happiness, love, family, generosity, Christmas, and probably also puppies. When his nephew Fred invites him over to Christmas dinner, Scrooge yells at him and refuses.

That night, he is haunted by his late business partner’s ghost, which warns Scrooge that the dead who led bad lives are forced to roam around and not be at peace. The ghost also claims that three other ghosts are going to appear to Scrooge, and leaves after telling Scrooge to change his life before it’s too late. Scrooge soon gets a visit from the Ghost of Christmas Past and the Ghost of Christmas Present, and finally the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come… Scrooge sees himself  dead with no one to mourn him—just a bunch of people to rob his corpse. After seeing his grave and freaking out, Scrooge promises to reform… and so he wakes up in his own bed on Christmas Day. He changes his attitude and lives the rest of his life with generosity, good cheer, and compassion toward the worse off. Truly, he’s become all about the spirit of Christmas…

During the show the narrator and the orchestra are accompanied by light. Video projections are used in order to augment reality and underline parts of the story. These projections are dynamic,interactive and generated in real time using advanced techniques in computer vision and state of the art sensors. The narrator interacts on stage with ghosts, switches characters and travels to other times and places with the help of these interventions created by a team of creative technologists and visual artists.
