The ballet production is dear to the hearts of lead dancers, Fiona Cole (the Snow Maiden), Ximena Landeros (the West Wind), Sara McDermott (the Frost Fairy) and Isabella Silvi (the North Wind), according to artistic director Patty O’Reilly.

The three first danced in “The Snow Maiden” when they were 5 and 6 years of age.
