The Snowqueen - The Musical
Louise Fribo: The Snowqueen.
THE SNOWQUEEN - The Musical, based on a fairy tale by H.C. Andersen.
Premiere in 1999.
The Snowqueen is one of the most popular and also more complex fairy tales of H.C. Andersen. In Lind & Jervidal´s edition we recognise Kay and Gerda in the leading parts but the story also has a little twist in the gallery with a new person, Aion. He is the son of the Devil and the Snowqueen. This gives the musical new energy and a more dramatic scenery and play between the Devil, Diabolus and the Snowqueen.
According to H.C. Andersen the story is about how emotions defeat the intellect, and Lind & Jervidal follow the fairytale story and let the innocent Gerda defeat all obstacles. Because her love to Kay is unique it gives her the power to save him from the Snowqueen.
As in all good fairy tales: Love - the greatest power of all - defeats all tribulations.
