The wood nymphs (samodivi) are one of the most memorable characters in Bulgarian folklore. They symbolize men’s most sacred dreams since they could destroy them or bring them closer to God.
"Wood nymph" is a magical story about love and the challenges everyone faces while searching for it. A magnificent combination of music, dance and theater!
