Bayer Ballet Company presents Snow Queen
Inspired by one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved fairytales, Bayer Ballet’s Snow Queen is a magical family tradition for the holiday season! Visually captivating and viscerally touching, this story ballet celebrates friendship, love and courage.
When the Snow Queen’s spell captures Kai, his sister, Gerda sets out on a quest to save him. Follow Gerda’s icy journey, as her heart leads her through the deep waters of a magical river, an enchanted flower garden, a spectacular palace, a forest filled with robbers, and the gleaming world of snow and ice that surrounds the Snow Queen’s ice castle.
Directed and choreographed by Inna Bayer, Snow Queen, which premiered in 2014, has become a Silicon Valley annual holiday tradition. This two-act ballet features hand painted sets, original costumes, and an award-winning cast of dancers from Bayer Ballet Company & Guest Artists.
Bayer Ballet is also honored to welcome back world-renowned choreographer, Vasily Medvedev for a special artistic collaboration. Snow Queen 2022 will feature new characters, re-envisioned choreography, and lighting effects.
