Creating of the show

The show was produced in 2012 by the director Anna Barashkova. A unique circus show on ice with only 30 artists. They use all their skills to convey the nature of each character. And create an atmosphere of winter fairy tale. A specially composed soundtrack and lovingly painted costumes and scenery help them in this.

Snow Queen ice circus show development

Despite the fact that the “Snow Queen” by Hans Christian Anderson is one of the leaders in the quantity of adaptations, features of performance of the Moscow Circus on an ice have allowed it to become one of the most popular ice shows in Russia. In 2015, the Art Event company re-produced the soundtrack for German spectators and organized a tour of Germany, which had a great success.

Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson

Interesting fact. To create the image of the Snow Queen Anderson was pushed by his unrequited love. The opera singer Jenny Lind. After her refusal the writer created a character whose heart was as cold as ice.

Artists of the Moscow Circus on ice in their version of “Snow Queen” will show and tell an ageless fairy tale about true love. Story of preserving children’s love on the long and difficult way of growing up. Gerda’s grandmother in the epilogue of Hans Christian Anderson’s book quotes the Bible:
“Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the Kingdom of Heaven” Matt. 18: 3
In the epilogue of our performance we insist:

“There is nothing in the world stronger than love.”
