Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a non-traditional modern ballet rising from the success of other fairytale ballets such as Cinderella, Coppélia, and Alice in Wonderland.

With the direct correlation between classic fairytale ballets and Walt Disney animations, Snow White became an idea many ballet companies have adopted into their own original work, pulling from the Disney animation and Disneyland Snow White musical for guidelines.

Scenes in this ballet vary from company to company as this is not a traditional performance piece.

Characters[edit]

Characters in the Snow White ballet typically mimic those in the Disney production in appearance and costume as that is where most inspiration comes from.

These characters typically include:

  • Snow White
  • Queen
  • Doctor
  • Huntsman
  • Seven Dwarfs
  • Animals
  • Villagers
