As referenced in part one of “The Snow Queen,” Han Christian Andersen’s version is very different from Disney’s “Frozen,” which is in part why we love bringing you the original versions (or very close to the original).
Here you’ll hear a whole host of interesting characters and situations that give the fairy tale its own distinct flavor, even as you get many familiar themes.
- Bengal Lights: A type of firework candle historically used for signaling flares and illumination.
- Muff: a handwarmer, usually made of fur.
- Sledge: Any of several types of sled that can be used to transport a person or goods (Scandinavians are often utilitarian)
- Stockfish: a type of dried fish.
- Window Leads: parts of a window used to hold panes of glass together actually made of lead.
Rated AD-G for general audiences. Contains a robbers who kill secondary characters, threaten murder of the primary characters, and mysterious aging, which we’re pretty sure is symbolic in a Joseph Campbell kind of way.
