The Snow Queen
Scroll to the bottom of the page for important parking information.
Premiering in December, 2011 as a much-needed alternative to the Yuletide season’s surfeit of Nutcracker performances, DanceVision’s adaptation of The Snow Queen uses enchanting choreography to tell Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved winter tale. A bittersweet story of the warming power of love against the chilling grip of hate, the production begins with best friends Gerda and Kai living happily in a tiny Scandinavian village. During Christmas Eve festivities, shards of a mirror enchanted by the devil lodge firmly in Kai’s eyes. Soon, the glass splinters harden the heart of the little boy, leading him to mock the townspeople and spurn his longtime friend. Kai is abducted by the beautiful yet wicked Snow Queen, who revels in his newfound callousness. Gerda embarks on a quest to save her erstwhile playmate, braving sorceresses, robbers, and the Snow Queen's army of Ice Maidens in order to rekindle Kai’s inner flame of kindness. Set to an original arrangement of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Edvard Grieg’s riveting compositions, this wintertime adventure was choreographed by DanceVision’s founder and artistic director, Risa Kaplowitz.
