The Stepmother's bedroom. Awakening in the morning, the Stepmother ir grouchy. She orders her servants about until her trusted Hunter finally brings in the most beautiful dress, one which is acceptable to the fussy ruler. Upon trying the dress on, she truly feels herself to be the queen of the world. Internally, however, she remains restless, and she looks into the magic mirror once more to make sure of her perfect appearance. In the mirror, she sees Snow White.
The castle garden. Snow White is dancing with the birds. The Prince rides by. Upon spotting the lovely Snow White, the Prince immediately falls head over heels in love with her.
The Stepmother's bedroom. Full of anger, the Stepmother summons the Hunter and orders him to take Snow White into the forest, to kill her, and to bring back her heart and liver as proof.
The forest. The Hunter takes Snow White into the forest. The girl asks him to leave her there, but the Hunter tries to carry out the Stepmother's orders. Snow White's trusted friends, the birds, keep the Hunter from carrying out his intentions and lure him away. Frightened and in tears, the young girl runs away. She loses her way in the forest and falls asleep.
It is a lovely, warm morning. The residents of the forest - fireflies, deer, ants, and dragonflies - wish to help Snow White. They take her to the house of the Dwarfs.
At the house of the Dwarfs, Snow White finds seven beds and a terrible mess. She and the animals decide to clean up. Once they have done so, they are all tired and fall asleep. From a distance, we hear the march of the Dwarfs. It becomes louder and louder. The Dwarfs arrive home and are surprised at how clean the house is. They are also surprised at the stranger who is sleeping in their bed. The youngest Dwarf takes a closer look and finds Snow White. The girl wakes up and spots the nice Dwarfs - Happy, Sneezy, Sleepy, Bashful, Grumpy, Doc and Dopey. They become good friends. The Dwarfs show their skills to Snow White. Everyone is happy.
The Stepmother's bedroom. The Stepmother is waiting for the Hunter to return. He brings her a box with a heart and liver. The Stepmother is satisfied. The mirror never lies, however, and it tells the Stepmother the truth about Snow White. She orders that the Hunter be arrested and then decides to kill Snow White herself. She conjures up a poisoned apple.
Scene 2. The house of the Dwarfs
It is a nice morning. The Dwarfs have all overslept, and so they leave for work in a great hurry, leaving Snow White alone.
The house of the Dwarfs is visited by a little old lady who offers Snow White an apple. Snow White refuses, but the old lady convinces her to take the fruit. Snow White does not realise that this is the Stepmother, who is in fact an evil witch. The birds unsuccessfully try to keep the Stepmother from doing the evil deed. Snow White bites into the apple and falls to the ground as if dead. The Witch laughs. The birds understand the situation, chase the Witch away and fly off to find the Dwarfs. They hyrry home but find that Snow White has died. The Dwarfs and birds all cry.
The Prince arrives on the scene, spots the lovely Snow White, takes her in his arms and kisses her. The apple falls to the ground and Snow White awakens. A wedding feast is held, and Snow White and the Prince will live happily ever after. The Witch appears, and when she sees that Snow White is alive, she burns up in anger.
