This is the story of a kingdom where fate has struck. The Queen has vanished. The King is grieving and refuses to come outside. His garden is a shambles. The jesters have fled the kingdom. The Princess is waiting for the thaw to set in. None of her suitors have touched her frozen heart, yet...

A visually stunning and tender story about loss and fate, and the hope that great sadness can pass. A story about snow and sunshine. And time.

Kopergietery brings a fresh approach to theatre featuring live music and wonderful illustrations with this evocative, musical tale that uncovers that tiny bit of hope when you think that all is lost.

“Anna Vercammen delivers a beautiful showpiece. She has a tremendous presence and hovers perfectly between tragedy and comfort, between drama and humour.” De Standaard
