Stella, Queen of the Snow
Red-headed Stella may be Queen of the Snow, but she’s also a little girl with a littler brother and a whole lot of curiosity. Based on the books by Mary-Louise Gay, Stella, Queen of the Snow story springs to life on stage with the help of an original score and a set filled with whimsical trees, Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s expressive puppets, and plenty of soft felt snowflakes. The story follows Stella and her younger brother as they traipse through the forest to create snow angels and lob snowballs at those snow angels. As they explore the coldest season, they discover the surprising warmth it has to offer.
The first event held in Symphony Space was a signal of the venue's ambitions and its creative approach to programming. In 1978, Allan Miller and Selected Shorts public-radio host Isaiah Sheffer reopened the formerly decaying market-turned-skating-rink-turned-theater to the public with 12 straight hours of Bach, including a night's-end chorus of hundreds of amateur and professional voices singing the composer's Mass in B Minor. Today, Symphony Space continues to welcome a diverse community from the neighborhood and beyond for performances from established and emerging artists.
