From the bustle of the winter’s market, to the shivers of a fairy tale forest, take a journey to the Snow Queen’s icy palace.
Along the way you’ll meet a colourful cast of characters, from young lovers parted by a spell, to a circus ringmaster with a few tricks up his sleeve.
Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale of love and friendship, this glittering production is sure to delight the whole family.
Scottish Ballet’s 50th anniversary year came to a spectacular close with the world premiere of The Snow Queen – choreographed by Artistic Director Christopher Hampson and designed by the award-winning Lez Brotherston, this dazzling new ballet is set to the music of Rimsky-Korsakov, performed here by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.
“… a truly memorable high” – The Herald *****
“... sumptuously designed, intelligent, sexy and romantic” – The Observer ****
“A wintry tale of fire and ice where selfless love wins, The Snow Queen, choreographed by Christopher Hampson, is a dangerous journey encountering bandits and snow creatures. At the centre is the magnificent but cruel Snow Queen herself, imperiously performed by the superb Constance Devernay, the star of the show.” – Broadway Baby ****
“Each scene carries robust choreography, beautifully delivered to a pick ‘n’ mix of Rimsky Korsakov classics.” – The Scotsman ****
