Libretto by W. Borkowski and S. Petrowski after Grimm brothers’ novel
“Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?
Oh Queen, oh Queen, you no longer are,
Snow White is more beautiful by far…”
There is perhaps no need to continue telling the story of Snow White and her witchlike stepmother, a well known tale which is loved by children throughout the world. The more important is that the story, as it befits a true fairy tale, eventually comes to a happy ending.
Premiere: 13 May 1972; production renewed on 30 June 1988.
