Set to a stunning array of orchestrated pieces by composers including Faris and Gounod.
Snow White is based on the traditional Grimm Brothers story. The new ballet incorporates all the favourite elements from this well-loved tale – from the enchanted mirror, to the beautiful heroine, to the bewitched shiny red apple and not forgetting the handsome Prince Charming.
Vienna Festival Ballet are excited to welcome Barry McGrath, former senior principal dancer of The Royal Ballet, principal dancer of London Festival Ballet, former senior principal dancer of the Scottish Ballet and New London Ballet.
Barry McGrath brings a wealth of experience to the choreography of Snow White.
Among the spectacular costumes made for this brand new ballet, VFB are extremely proud to present specially commissioned costumes for the principal dancers Snow White and the Queen, designed and made by Vonnie Meyrick-Brook, costume maker from blockbuster films such as Skyfall and the Harry Potter series.
