Program Notes

A Christmas Carol is a 2009 American computer-animated dark fantasy Christmas film written and directed by Robert Zemeckis. It is based on Charles Dickens's 1843 novel of the same name and stars the voices of Jim Carrey, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Bob Hoskins, Robin Wright Penn and Cary Elwes.

On Christmas Eve 1843, in London, miserly business man Ebenezer Scrooge refuses to partake in the merriment of Christmas, declining his cheerful nephew Fred's invitation to an annual Christmas dinner party and rejecting two gentlemen's offer to donate money to charity. His employee Bob Cratchit asks Scrooge to give him a day off on Christmas Day to spend time with his family, to which Scrooge reluctantly agrees. Returning home that night, Scrooge encounters the ghost of Jacob Marley, his business partner who died seven years ago, bound in heavy chains. Marley warns Scrooge to change his wicked ways or be condemned to a worse fate.

Much of the music was based on actual carols, including God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen, Deck the Halls, O Come, All Ye Faithful, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing and Joy to the World. The theme song God Bless Us Everyone was written by Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard.
