The Snow Queen, a story in music for soprano, 2 speakers and orchestra, was composed to a libretto by Andreas Schäfer based on motives from Hans Christian Andersen. It requires large forces, lasts some 75 minutes, and is intended for children (aged 8 years and up), young people and adults. Besides the orchestra on stage, a “spatial music” ensemble is also placed in the hall and can be heard from different directions. This work is equally suitable for concert or semi-staged performances, or a fully staged production.

The music-theatre work was composed in 2018 to a commission from the Zurich Tonhalle Society to celebrate its 150th anniversary.
