Luka and the Magical Tivoli Theatre

Luka and the Magical Tivoli Theatre is a moving Christmas tale about 11-year-old Luka who finds friendship and magic in an old theatre.

The story takes place in Kristiania, Norway at the turn of the 20th century. We meet Luka, a poor boy with no money and no friends. One day he enters an old theater, and for the first time Luka witnesses flying fairies, dancing ballerinas and heavenly music.

Little does he know that the theater is at risk of being thrown out – on Christmas Eve of all days. The theater must be saved at any cost. But how? What can the children do when the adults give up?
