Go, I say, go on your way Goethe, Schiller, Fontane… Great poets, difficult texts, serious topics – that’s nothing for children. But of course it is!
With this collage of five classic ballads taken from world literature, we prove the opposite. We explore the stories hidden behind the verse and use all the artistry of puppetry to bring them to life. As we blow the dust off these old classics, it’s not just children who will be surprised at how timeless, exciting, and beautiful ballads are.
A child-friendly introduction to classical literature, and the perfect opportunity for adults to become reacquainted with some old favorites.
