From the land of Baba Yaga and the little hut on chickens legs, ‘Snegurotchka,’ or ‘The Snow Maiden,’ is one of Russia’s most popular stories known by countless children, young and old, and in many other parts of the world. An aged couple of toymakers from a small village wish for a child of their own and decide to make one from snow. The snow maiden magically comes to life and is named Snegurotchka. Although the talk of the village, she remains alone and cut off from everyone. Our version is told as an animated storytelling experience using simple paper puppets to bring the story to life.
