About The Snow Queen

Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of dark magic, the power of friendship and the triumph of good over evil is revisited in a new Australian work by composer Gordon Kerry and writer John Kinsella commissioned by Victorian Opera. Their take on Andersen’s classic will be staged exclusively in Wodonga and will capture the heart of the local community.

 

After Kai is abducted by the Snow Queen, Gerda must begin an arduous quest to save her friend from the Queen’s evil clutches. Her journey is helped and hindered by the mythical creatures she encounters as she seeks to rescue Kai.

 

This new Australian production strengthens Victorian Opera’s ties to regional Victoria and again engages local performers across Wodonga, following previous involvement in the company’s regional touring productions Remembrance and The Pied Piper.
