Performed by The Russian State Ballet of Siberia Accompanied by a live orchestra The Russian State Ballet Orchestra Protected from the outside world by Father Frost, the exquisite Snow Maiden plays innocently amongst the dancing snowflakes in the enchanted Land of Frost. Based on a traditional folk-tale, set in the snow covered landscape of the Russian countryside, this seasonal sparkler follows Snow Maiden as she dances into the human world.

When finally she surrenders herself completely and warms to love, her heart melts in a tragic embrace. The critics said.... 'It is glittering white and silver...'
