Kids and adults alike will truly have an unforgettable Christmas season as Ballet Philippines bring to the Main Theater of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, one of the most favorite fairy tales of all time, Snow White,starting on December 5.

Made into a wonderful ballet production by Ms. Effie Nañas, relive the enchanting story of a beautiful princess whose skin is white as snow and lips as red as the petal of a rose. She is tormented by the evil deeds of her wicked stepmother, the Queen, prompting Snow White to live in the wilderness with seven oddball characters: Happy, Sleepy, Sneezy, Bashful, Grumpy, Doc, and Dopey—dwarves with hearts of gold who whistle while they work.

The magic of her life unfolds enchantingly on stage as Snow White's kindness and compassion is rewarded with her heart's wish—the coming of her prince. And by the power of true love's first kiss, the spell is broken and Prince Charming and Snow White live happily ever after.
