LET IT SNOW QUEEN

LET IT SNOW QUEEN

Amid the annual flurry of Sugar Plum Fairies and enchanted Nutcrackers, another seasonal tale vies for attention as California Contemporary Ballet returns with The Snow Queen , based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. Randall Michael Tobin composed the original score and artistic director Erin Holt choreographed Andersen's story of a young girl's adventures with gypsies and princesses on a courageous journey to save a friend held captive by the Snow Queen. The company's professional dancers are supplemented by students from the troupe's youth ballet.
