The Ancram Opera House production of The Snow Queen is a new musical adaptation of the classic fairy tale by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. “A man is haunted by a recurring bad dream. A girl journeys barefoot through the world to rescue her best friend. Their stories intertwine in this new adaptation with music, presented as a staged concert, accompanied by striking visuals.” Book & lyrics by Barbara Wiechmann, music by Lisa Dove, and directed by Jeffrey Mousseau.
