Columbus Dance Theatre's beloved holiday classic Matchgirl returns for its 18th year - a highlight of the Columbus Holiday Season! This timeless tale written by Hans Christian Andersen was created as CDT's annual family ballet more than a decade ago by CDT Artistic Director Tim Veach. It continues to move Columbus audiences with its poignant message of forgiveness, hope, and joy. CDT is pleased to continue its collaboration with the Department of Music of Ohio Wesleyan University for the production. "Associate Professor of Music Jason Hiester serves as our conductor for the production and has assembled a terrific ensemble of singers and instrumentalists for Matchgirl," says Veach. "The music for Act I of the ballet features various works by Aaron Copland, and the music for Act II is John Rutter's Magnificat."
