Some of the best figure skaters of the early '80s, including Dorothy Hamill and Toller Cranston gather to present this beautiful, balletic version of Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale of a young maiden who bravely faces the fearsome ice-hearted Snow Queen in order to free her beloved. The story is set to the music of Mussorgsky, Glazunov and Rimsky-Korsakov. Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux provided the skaters' choreography.
