Sándor Petőfi

Sir John

Who would you like to be the most? Johnny Grain o’ Corn or Iluska? A French princess or a hussar? Would you want to travel the lands by horse, or to fly through the skies on the back of a griffin? Or you would prefer to cross the seas in the palm of a giant?

The play is like a shop window in which the objects come to life: scarves turn into witches, ribbons into deep forests and rivers; reality turns into fiction, and fiction turns into reality.

Sándor Petőfi’s wonderful poem tells the tale in which you can become the protagonist. Come and fly with us to Fairy Land to find what you have been looking for!
