A glittering winter fairytale from Scottish Ballet celebrating love, friendship and the festive season.

From the bustle of a winter’s market to the shivers of a fairytale forest, the enthralling production breathes life into a colourful cast of characters. Take a journey to the Snow Queen’s palace and find her surrounded by the icy fragments of an enchanted mirror.
