Based on the classic by Hans Christian Andersen and set to music by Mozart arranged and orchestrated by Bernard J. Taylor.
It borrows many of Mozart's sweetest tunes from his most well-loved and most beautiful music and puts it all together in a stirring tale of hardships overcome, evil vanquished and opposites attracted.
The show requires a minimum cast of about 25, but can be expanded to include a chorus of 20 or more.
There are 13 main characters, 2 secondary characters, and a chorus of at least 10, preferably more.
There is a chorus of birds and trees, a chorus of Pharaoh's attendants (who appear only in the opening scene), and a chorus of Vikings.
