Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale (also the basis for Disney’s Frozen), the spectacular production of The Snow Queen by Scottish Ballet returns to the stage, visiting Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness, set to music by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and performed live by the full Scottish Ballet Orchestra. From the bustle of a winter’s market to the shivers of a fairytale forest, audiences take a journey to the Snow Queen’s palace, where she is surrounded by the icy fragments of an enchanted mirror. Along the way there’s a sparkling cast of characters, from young lovers parted by a spell to a circus ringmaster with a few tricks up his sleeve.
