The Magical Princess

This is a play adapted from an old Ukrainian Folktale. It tells the story of a simple man, called Andreas, who saves the life of a beautiful princess. In return she marries him and weaves a magic tapestry. Andreas decides to sell it to the mighty Tzar, who agrees to buy, but only if he also brings him the treasure rare, "I-don't-know-what from I-don't-know-where". So begins a long and amazing journey across the world full of wonderful sights and magical effects.
