"The Snowman" is the story of a little boy who builds a snowman in winter. He comes to life and the little boy has to explain many things from the human world to the snowman. So the two of them quickly become closer on their journey through the winter night. The animated film "The Snowman" by Dianne Jackson, which we present on the big screen, is based on the charming classic English children's book by Raymond Briggs. It is a film gem: "The Snowman" won a BAFTA Award for Best Children's Film in the early 80s and was nominated for an Oscar in the category "Best Animated Short Film". The animated film adaptation, which does without any spoken word at all, is shown on television in England every year on Christmas Eve. The atmospheric images and music by Howard Blake, brought to life by the entire Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich and a boy soprano in this family concert, are sure to enchant you too.
