The Snow Queen
A glittering winter tale
Scottish Ballet’s spectacular and much-loved production of The Snow Queen returns to the stage, after its sell-out tour in 2019.
This glittering production is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale – which was also the basis for Frozen. Set to the music of Rimsky-Korsakov which will be performed live by the full Scottish Ballet Orchestra.
From the bustle of a winter’s market to the shivers of a fairytale forest, take a journey 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.
Choreographed by Christopher Hampson and designed by the award-winning Lez Brotherston, this story of love and friendship is sure to delight the whole family.
On special days, the magic starts a little earlier for The Snow Queen audiences – check out when our Talk Ballet pre-show talks will be held. Pre-Show talk.
The company dances magnificently – this 50th anniversary year ends on a truly memorable high.
Frosty and firelit, sweet and sharp, it's another Scottish Ballet Christmas triumph.
