The focus of the production is the equally idiosyncratic and sensitive Goldmarie.

With her dreaminess and slowness she is a thorn in the side of her stressed mother. Forced by her mother to retrieve the lost spindle, she dares to jump into the well and dives into a completely new world. Her love for nature and her fellow men are her motivation, which is appreciated and rewarded by the enigmatic Frau Holle.
In contrast, the unhinged unlucky lady must later realize that cheating and shirking in life will not help her in the long run. When she tries to avoid doing the tasks assigned to her, she is not doused with bad luck, but is made to think about herself in an imaginative way. At the end of the story her mother also learns something else: to finally take more time for herself and her little family!
The production also breaks new ground musically. An exciting interplay of spherical sounds and choral female voices joins unusual instruments in the form of everyday objects. The simple and stimulating stage design, the imaginative costumes and the expressive songs take the audience on a playful, mysterious and cheerful journey.
