In 2008, one of France’s leading choreographers, Angelin Preljocaj, presented his first full-length story ballet Blanche Neige (Snow White). Now, in 2012, the Mondavi Center presents the United States debut of this amazing contemporary ballet. Based on Grimm’s fairy tale, Blanche Neige is set to music by Gustav Mahler, with costumes by Jean-Paul Gaultier and set design by Thierry Leproust. Le Journal du Dimanche called the work “a great popular ballet such as we have not seen since Béjart.”


Blanche Neige is a grown-up retelling of Grimm’s fairy tale. Due to brief nudity and mature themes, it is not appropriate for young audiences.
