Ballet Dalton's Snow Queen, Featuring the Creative Arts Guild Chamber Orchestra

The Snow Queen is a ballet based on the fairy tale by author Hans Christian Andersen. The tale was first published in 1845, and centers on the struggle between good and evil as experienced by Kay and Gerda.

The story is considered by scholars, critics, and readers alike as one of Andersen’s best. It is regularly included in selected tales and collections of his work as well as being frequently reprinted in illustrated storybook editions for children. In 2014 each media center in Murray, Whitfield and Dalton Pubic Schools was given an Introduction to Ballet DVD for your use. If your school does not have a copy of this DVD, please contact Jessie Fincher and we will be sure to supply your school with a copy.

This year, The Snow Queen school performance has one incredible addition...A live orchestra! A full chamber orchestra made up of professional musicians from Dalton and the surrounding areas with David Pasqua serving as conductor will provide live music for The Snow Queen. Thanks to the incredible do nation of time and talent by Rodney Bishop, the score for the production was created and the dream of a live orchestra became a reality. Adding live music to the production not only enhances the viewing and listening experience for the audience but also offers an educational component and once in a lifetime experience for the Guild dancers.
