The Chelmsford Ballet Company takes on the classic Snow Queen
The Chelmsford Ballet Company, calling the city its home for almost seventy years, will be performing its 2018 production, Snow Queen, from 21 – 24 March 2018 at the Civic Theatre, Chelmsford.
Tickets for Snow Queen are now on sale, with sparkle, glitter, stunning costumes and intricate staging adding to the production, and glorious music by Glazunov. This is a production for all who love a spectacle and is also the perfect introduction to the art form for new ballet audiences.
Based on Hans Christian Anderson’s classic fairytale, telling the age-old story of the fight between good and evil, audiences will be swept along a magical journey with Gerda and Kay. The company will return to its classical roots with this tale; Gerda seeks to break the cruel spell cast by the Snow Queen, embarking on adventure through enchanted forests, meeting fantastical animals, and seeking to triumph over evil.

Following a Snow Queen workshop and auditions for Snow Queen parts for the company’s dancers, this classic production is set to delight audiences both young and old. The amateur company prides itself on its professional standards, demonstrating a huge array of talent through its dancers excelling themselves within each production staged at Chelmsford’s Civic Theatre.
