Fairy tale dances its way through Delaware Art Museum

Apr 2, 2017

The Delaware Art Museum welcomes dancers from the Delaware Arts Conservatory for a performance of The Snow Queen, the ballet adapted from the classic fairy tale.

You may be familiar with The Snow Queen, or at least parts of it, since the Disney hit Frozen was adapted from the Hans Christian Andersen story.

The performance at the Delaware Art Museum ties in with one of its current exhibitions, Wonder and Whimsy, which features three pen-and-ink drawings by famed illustrator W. Heath Robinson. 

"We always like to make those interdisciplinary connections with visual art. So dance is a really good way to bring these illustrations to life," Delaware Art Museum Director of Education Saralyn Rosenfield said.

The Snow Queen premiers at The Delaware Art Museum Sunday April 9.
