About the event

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who in this land is fairest of all?

International dance sensations Ballet Preljocaj bring their award-winning Snow White to Australia for a strictly limited season this winter. Featuring costumes by legendary haute couture designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, lavish sets by Thierry Leproust and music by Gustav Mahler, this wickedly dark retelling of the classic tale is guaranteed to leave you spellbound.

Inspired by the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale of 1812, this extravagant full-length ballet follows the renowned story of innocent Snow White with 'skin as white as snow' and the envy, deceit and obsession of her stepmother Queen. White tutus give way to sumptuous, avant-garde costumes and classical ballet surrenders to modern choreographic magic in a Snow White – most simply put – fairer than them all.

"Dark, modern and gripping, Ballet Preljocaj's Snow White is a must-see production"
