The Snow Queen

The SNOW QUEEN is H.C. Anderson enchanted tale of little Gerda who travels to the end of the world to find her childhood friend Kay.

His heart has been pierced by a splinter from a malevolent mirror and he now resides with the seductive and ice cold Snow Queen.

The team behind the sold out Gastronomic Theatre experience “The Prophecy of the Volva” have now created yet another magical universe that stimulates all our senses. The show becomes a thrillingly tasty experience where sounds and smells turn into extraordinary visuals.

Food artist Mette Martinussen is renowned for her loving food tales and the audience can expect adventurous food on little Gerda´s journey, including heavenly pastry and succulent hare on a spit.

The international Performancediva Charlotte Engelkes returns to Republique as the beautiful and icy Snow Queen. She also played the drunken, treacherous Queen Mother in Republique’s HAMLET.

The audience will join Gerda´s visual coming of age journey through seven different locations, consisting of strange and desolate areas, enchanted gardens and roaring rivers. She has to suffer many a hardship on her quest to find her beloved Kay and on the way she grows from child to young woman.
