Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?

High fashion meets iconic fairy tale in this darkly delectable retelling of Snow White.

Ballet Preljocaj’s bewitching transformation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale is a boldly seductive global hit. Its fresh and sexy take on the timeless conflict between young Snow White and her jealous stepmother the Queen is both strikingly sensual and blazingly contemporary – and courtesy of costumes by the legendary fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier, an incredible visual spectacle, too.

Masterminded by acclaimed French choreographer Angelin Preljocaj, this ravishing concoction of dance, design and wearable art has reawakened the classic story’s themes of beauty and envy for a new age. Combined with towering sets and the monumental symphonies of Gustav Mahler, Snow White is ballet on a truly visionary scale.
