Arlington, VA (Oct. 27, 2022)- Synetic Theater celebrates the season with a delightful, original holiday production, Snow Maiden, December 1-23 in National Landing. A boy searching for joy builds a friend from the snow and his creation miraculously comes to life. Their time together is full of mischief and laughter, but can the cold winter keep their friendship alive forever? Tickets are on sale now at

High in the mountains, deep in a snow-covered forest, an extraordinary friendship comes of a lonely boy’s hopes for a friend. On Christmas morning, he builds a companion from snow and the Snow Maiden magically comes to life. Their friendship blossoms…until the snow begins to melt around them. Told through dazzling movement, dance and acrobatics, Snow Maiden is a heart-warming story of love, hope and the transformative powers of awe and wonder.

Based on the beloved 19th-century folktale, “Snegurochka” by Alexander Ostrovsky, Snow Maiden is a new original production created and directed by Helen-Hayes Award-winning choreographer and Synetic Co-Founder Irina Tsikurishvili. Actress Maryam Najafzada, a classically trained ballet dancer and choreographer from Azerbaijan, will play Snow Maiden alongside award-winning Georgian-American actor, director and choreographer Vato Tsikurishvili as The Boy. Both Najafzada and Tsikurishvili are masters of Synetic’s signature stage movement.

The family-friendly, 45-minute holiday tale comes to life in a wordless production set to an enchanting score combining classical pieces and music by resident composer, Koki Lortkipanidze. Snow Maiden is a charming holiday show for family and friends of all ages to enjoy.

Ticket holders are encouraged to come early for holiday music, and winter-themed arts and crafts activities.
