2017 Arany bab Award – an audience award-wining performance, Győr
After The Tales of Mother Gooses, your favourites are back again! Come and see them again!
In The Further Tales of Mother Goose, we follow the tried and tested structure of the first part, adapting a number of varied, exciting fairy tales.
In this part, we look into the everyday lives of Mother Goose and her goslings, hearing Mother Goose’s stories again. But only after she finally finds her long-lost basket!
First we visit the three little pigs: Grunt, Brunt and Runt. Suddenly a nasty wolf appears. Luckily, the wolf comes off worst in the end, while the piglets live happily ever after, and then turn back into goslings.
Shortly after that, a new adventure begins: we arrive at a wonderful place, in the realm of the dream elves – in a faraway land, where the fields, the bushes and the trees are fantastically colourful, and where the emerald green-eyed dream elves concoct people’s dreams. One day, one of the elves has an unusual idea, and so we fly further on to the next story, as if we were dreaming.
Here Mother Goose’s old dream of becoming a fairy in one of the stories, finally comes true. This is how we arrive in the life of Cinderella, whose stepmother and stepsisters force her to work continuously. But despite all the difficulties, Cinderella goes to the ball, where she meets the prince. The clock strikes midnight and Cinderella has to leave immediately. The prince goes after her… And they live happily ever after.
Our story, too, is coming to an end, and as we know, all is well that ends well. Towards the end of the story, we find ourselves yet again in fairyland with Mother Goose and her goslings.
Mother Goose is always happy to see anyone and offers a refreshing, beautiful story. Come and join us!
The Three Little Pigs, The Dream Elves, and Cinderella in 40 minutes
Premiere: 26 April 2016
In the second part of the performance, where we adapt various stories, the structure of Ravel’s musical piece is regarded as a starting point. In this part, as we find ourselves in the midst of Mother Goose’s and the gosling’s everyday lives, Mother Goose starts telling us a story again.
First, we visit the three little pigs, but then a nasty wolf appears. Luckily, the wolf comes off worst in the end, and the piglets live happily ever after. The goslings live on happily, too. After this we arrive at a wonderful place, in the realm of the dream elves: far up north, where there aren’t any green fields, bushes and trees, where there isn’t even any earth, only sheets of ice floating on the surface of the sea, and where instead of sand, ground ice is poured into sandpits; there, up north, live the emerald-eyed dream elves. We fly with them, as if we were dreaming. In this part, Mother Goose’s old dream of becoming a fairy in one of the stories, finally comes true. This is how we arrive in the life of Cinderella, who, after meeting the prince at the ball, lives with him happily ever after. And all is well that ends well. Mother Goose is always happy to see anyone and offers a beautiful story to everyone.
During this part, too, we interactively engage with our young audience, so that the children can be part of our story.
