Before Disney made Snow White famous, Marius Petipa staged a ballet just for her! “The Magic Mirror” was the last full-length ballet he created, and has been dubbed his most controversial work.
He began working on the new ballet in 1902, with the music composed by Russian composer, Arsenii Koreschenko. The ballet was an adaptation of Alexander Pushkin’s poem “The Tale of the Dead Princess and the Seven Knights” and the Brothers Grimm’s fairy tale “Snow White,” but was more faithful to the former. 1911 marked the final performance.
Our unique ballet is also an adaption; drawing from the classic Disney movie, the Brothers Grimm’s fairytale, and Peitpa’s original ballet. You will also see a classical variation, The Bluebird Variation, which can be found in the “Sleeping Beauty” ballet and has been performed by many world-renowned ballerinas.
Join us Saturday, June 16th for our first ever full-length ballet including Princes and Princesses, Queens and villains, furry friends and twinkling stars. You won’t want to miss it!
