CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
One of the UK's leading Ballet Companies. The Snow Queen
is a touching, gothic fairytale which will be lavishly retold by English National Ballet's full Company of dancers with live music from the full Orchestra of English National Ballet. The Snow Queen
is a tale about two young friends Kay and Gerda. Eternal winter descends on their land and Kay catches a sliver of the Snow Queen's shattered magic mirror in his eye. As a result he sees everything in the world as bad and twisted. Mesmerised by the beauty of the Snow Queen, he goes with her to her palace in the far frozen north. Gerda searches the world over to find her friend and with the help of the Gypsies and their reindeer, she makes her way to the Snow Queen's Palace. Her love for Kay releases him from his spell. The sliver of mirror falls from his eye and the curse of eternal winter is broken. English National Ballet - The Snow Queen website
