The Greenwich Historical Society will host a holiday presentation of "The Snow Maiden" by the No Strings Marionette Company. The tale of the Snow Maiden, told in Russia for hundreds of years, is about a perfect little girl sculpted entirely of snow, magically brought to life to the delight of a childless couple that embraces her as their own. But can love sustain this child of winter upon the arrival of spring? Find out as a host of the mythical characters bring this original adaptation of a beloved Russian folktale to life in a whole new way. The audience will have an opportunity to participate during the performance, to interact with the puppets and performers and to examine the puppets after the show.
