Join the Vienna Ballet for a festive Snow White

One of the Isle of Wight's most-vibrant arts spaces is to play host to the Vienna Festival Ballet this December, with the company's dancers to perform a new production of Snow White.
The company, which has won rave reviews both at home and abroad, will take to the stage of the Medina Theatre on the evening of Tuesday December 3rd.
For one night only they will showcase their new adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairytale, complete with an enchanted mirror, a beautiful girl, Prince Charming and, of course, a wicked witch, with the tale told through a stirring combination of music and contemporary dance.
According to the theatre, the "spellbinding ballet promises to entertain and dazzle the whole family", with special rates on offer for anyone under the age of 17, as well as for the over-60s.
The Vienna Festival Ballet, which is actually based in the UK, was founded in 1980, since when it has made a name for itself with acclaimed productions of classics such as The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake.
Under the directorship of Peter Mallek, the company has also gained a name for itself as a leading performer of contemporary takes on well-known works, with this upcoming performance on the Isle of Wight likely to enhance the dancers' reputation further still.
Snow White is just one highlight of the festive calendar at the Medina Theatre, with a host of other special shows due to be staged in the run-up to Christmas.
As always, the Medina Community Choir will be hosting their annual Christmas concert at the beginning of the month, while nearer to the big day itself, tourists are invited to join locals at a series of seasonal carol concerts.
Plus, of course, the much-loved theatre will also stage a traditional panto, with a new family-friendly production of the much-loved classic Jack and the Beanstalk set to run into the new year.
