Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College will once again partner with Russian theatre producer Anton Krilloff to present a Russian holiday fairy tale, The Snow Maiden (Снегрочка).
In this magical Christmas story, a worthy young girl is transformed by Grandfather Frost (the Russian Santa Claus) into the beautiful Snow Maiden. This delightful children’s extravaganza incorporates traditional Russian songs, dances and elaborate costumes to create a winter wonderland. Plus, every child gets a Christmas candy gift box!
“The Snow Maiden” premiered in 2008 in Moscow. The creative team on this show includes an honored Russian writer and director Boris Boreyko (The Bremen Town Musicians), director and choreographer Andrey Ivanov, and costume designer Tatyana Kudryavtseva. All costumes were created by the Mariinsky Theatre tailors.
