Disney’s Frozen has nothing on this dark and devastating Danish fairy tale. “The Snow Queen” was first published in 1844 by Hans Christian Andersen and has since been adapted into movies, television shows, operas and ballets. Two children, Gerda and Kay, battle the Snow Queen and try to find a balance between good versus evil.
