Ballet Theatre of Maryland (BTM) invites the public to attend its 40th-anniversary premiere of “Snow White” at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts on February 22 at 7:30pm, February 23 at 7:00pm and February 24 at 2:00pm in Annapolis.
The ballet brings to life a vivid fantasy tale with a wicked, powerful, vain queen; a beautiful, empathetic princess; dwarves fraught with humor; a bold and courageous prince; magic mirrors; and poisoned apples.
Snow White and her whimsical dwarves will take audiences on a journey of unexpected twists and turns filled with magic, suspense, humor, romance and intrigue in this retelling of the beloved Grimm fairytale.
“My goal,” said Artistic Director Dianna Cuatto, “is to infuse new life into this tale of ‘Snow White’ by adding depth to the story and by creating some additional challenges for the characters to overcome as they discover that real power exists only in true beauty, caring and love. I also want to capture enough of the elements that have delighted all ages in the past, while adding some new characters and plot twists of my own that can only be expressed best through the powerful language of dance.”
Emily Brennan stars as Snow White with Lindsey Hinchliffe as Wicked Queen Regina, Jackson Kettell as her courageous prince, and Stephaen Hood as the Huntsman, torn between his love for the queen and his duty to serve the greater good.
