This glittering new production by Scottish Ballet is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s much-loved tale – which was also the basis for Frozen – and draws the ballet company’s 50th anniversary year to a spectacular close.
Set to the music of Rimsky-Korsakov, performed live by the full Scottish Ballet Orchestra, the tale takes you on a journey from the bustle of a winter’s market to the shivers of a fairytale forest, to the Snow Queen’s palace, where you’ll find her surrounded by the icy fragments of an enchanted mirror. 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.
