Featuring a cast of more than 60 dancers and actors from across the Hudson Valley, “A Christmas Carol” is Ulster Ballet Company’s signature take on Dickens’s heartwarming tale of redemption. (Whether or not Sir Charles wished Tiny Tim and Ebeneezer Scrooge to be the most potent portions of his literary legacy is open to question.) Sara Miot, formerly of the New York City Ballet, choreographed and directed the show. With its spectacular lighting and special effects, colorful costumes, and stunning sets by acclaimed local painter Leslie Bender, Ulster Ballet’s production has become a holiday tradition for Hudson Valley audiences. Now in its 33rd year, the Ulster Ballet Company includes many regional artists, choreographers, stage professionals, actors, and writers. Scarlett Fiero and Quiedo Carbone are the company’s artistic directors. “A Christmas Carol” will be performed at UPAC in Kingston on Friday, December 2 at 7:30pm; Saturday, December 3 at 7:30pm; and Sunday, December 4 at 2pm. $19/$15/$12. www.upac.org.
