Based on the story by H.C. Andersen, The Snow Queen is a ballet for the whole family, a huge hit and critical success that has sold out every performance including extra ones in the past four years. The production has also been screened in cinemas and broadcast on TV.
The Snow Queen recounts the magical adventures of two children living in Helsinki a century ago, Kai and Kerttu. The story shows how much courage they need to cope with what life throws at them. Kerttu’s grandmother has bought a beautiful old mirror at a market on a trip to Lapland without knowing that it houses the magical power of the Snow Queen.
