This glittering ballet production is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale – which was also the basis for the animated movie Frozen. The screening was filmed at the premiere at Festival Theatre Edinburgh in 2019.
From the bustle of a winter’s market to the shivers of a fairytale forest take a journey to the Snow Queen’s palace on the silver screen. Along the way you’ll meet a sparkling cast of characters from young lovers parted by a spell to a circus ringmaster with a few tricks up his sleeve.

Founded in 1969, the Scottish Ballet has brought audiences inspiring performances with a creative vision crafted by Scotland over the decades. Based in Glasgow, the company performs throughout the UK and different places in the world to promote Scotland's pioneering spirit far and wide.
Scottish Ballet is Scotland's flagship dance company, and one of the most interesting and innovative ensembles in the UK, with a pioneering track record in digital work. It created the world's first digital dance season in 2017, thus opening a new dimension in dance viewing, even before the current pandemic made digital the only way to view performing arts – still the case in many parts of the UK.

The story begins when the Summer Princess, who lives in the ice palace with the Snow Queen, has seen herself through the enchanted mirror embracing a handsome stranger in the future. She then decides to leave the palace to find him. The princess later recognises in town a handsome young man, Kai, who proposes to his beloved Gerda, as the stranger she saw in the mirror. To bring her sister back to the palace, the Snow Queen steals Kai and bewitches him to forget his true love. Gerda sets out alone to save Kai and reaches the palace. In the end, the Summer Princess returns to her sister, and the Snow Queen's spell is broken. Kai and Gerda are reunited.
