Once upon a time... Grimm's fairy tale in the Glass Palace. Two actors, a well-known original text and a small stage - that's all it takes for maximum theatrical happiness!
"Rapunzel, let down your hair...", words of a fairy tale at least as well known as its authors, who recorded them in writing for posterity. Everyone knows this fairy tale: A story of the fulfillment of the most ardent wishes and the first great and everlasting love. But if we allow this fairy tale to become reality, it begins to take possession of us and suddenly the characters become part of us. Suddenly it is the fairy tale that observes and questions the viewer. Everything turns upside down and abysses open up that can only find expression in an opulent baroque opera.
Snow-white, blood-red and black like the soul of the step-queen... Falsehood, ill-will, vanity and beautiful murders, a tender child in the snow with seven dubious dwarfs: a turgid classic that spares us nothing. Fantastic as hardly ever, in this fairy tale chaotic poetry, grotesque absurdity and quirky monstrosity pushes into the twilight with untamed wildness and wants to make itself believable to us. Do not oversleep the most beautiful nightmare ever dreamed!
