Brief presentation of the performance:

A great king ruled a land over which had befallen a cursed hag that destroyed his palace as soon as it was built. His only joy were his three sons, to whom he wanted this palace to be left as inheritance. The Magic Bird is the only solution for the palace to survive and not to be destroyed.
The true wisdom and courage of the sons will be proven in this darkest hour: the one who succeeds in bringing the Magic Bird will also be the successor to the throne.
Truth and lies, courage and cowardice, love and hatred, friendship and enmity – will come to light as the trials that the three sons will have to face unfold before the spectators.
