"French choreographer Angelin Preljocaj has created a wickedly erotic contemporary ballet reinventing the alluring fairy tale of Snow White. With 26 dancers dressed by fashion's enfant terrible Jean Paul Gaultier and immersed in the symphonies of Gustav Mahler, Preljocaj offers an interpretation of a timeless narrative. Dripping with symbols of desire and the inescapable power of time - incarnated in the iconic character of the devilish stepmother - 'Snow White' challenges conventional notions of form and content."
