Description Good and evil are given a new interpretation using classical ballet. The music created for Snow White by Juha Kirjonen provides a beautiful background to a brief series of events. The girl must go out into the world, forced by the envy of someone and the threat of death. Soon, however, the girl realises that she can flourish with the support of her prince, nature in the woods and her old friend, the forest warden. Finally, the evil queen/witch feels once again that she is the most beautiful woman in the world.
Other Information The work was premiered as a part of the Ballet Workshop evening, which consisted of the works peek-a-boo, Peikko_0.65beta, Apina, Play, sama sama but different, Segrex and Snow white.
