The Snow Queen

Kenneth Greve

Kenneth Greve's ballet for the whole family is based on the tale by H.C. Andersen from 1845. The principal characters are Kerttu and Kai, who are good friends. Kerttu finds the missing piece of the Snow Queen's mirror, and the Snow Queen kidnaps Kai to get it back. Kerttu wanders far and yonder in search of Kai and finally ends up at the frozen castle of the Snow Queen.

The Snow Queen is an impressive tribute to love and childhood innocence. Its magical world was created by costume designer Erika Turunen and lighting designer Mikki Kunttu together with the choreographer. The accompanying music is a recording performed by the Finnish National Opera orchestra under the direction of the composer Tuomas Kantelinen.

Tickets EUR 21,50-107,50, stalls from EUR 65,50 (incl. service charge). Full details of seat prices for each performance and updated information about seats available at online sales.
