California Contemporary Ballet’s ‘Thumbelina’

California Contemporary Ballet From the creators of the popular ballet Snow Queen, the magical story of Thumbelina is brought to life in a production the entire family can enjoy.


Thumbelina, a spring-time ballet inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s story, shares the tale of a young, tiny girl and her adventures with appearance- and marriage-minded toads, moles and May bugs. Thumbelina eventually meets a flower-fairy prince just her size and falls in love.


Focusing on the themes of adventure, friendship and ultimate happiness, this production is a light, colorful rendezvous that shouldn’t be missed.
