The king's son will grow up. The kid will become a man passing lots of obstacles. Naive and umpatient he is deceived and loses his true love. But destinity will give him a chance so that truth and pure love will triumph.

Fantastic and real characters live together in our performance. And that's not a coincidence. When we look deeper from the top of the apple tree to the bottom of the deep well, we find a magnificent world of justice and moral order, a world that every good heart dreams for. Let’s dream together!

The tale is included in the curriculum of the Bulgarian schools.
The project is supported by the Ministry of Culture, FIB and co-produced by State Puppet Theatre - Stara Zagora and "Arte Viva" Foundation.
