A ballet full of mystery and miracles, poetry and beauty, and wonderful dreams that come true on Christmas Eve by the green fir tree…
Andrei Melanyin: “This performance is meant for children and adults alike. There is no childish primitivism though. This is just the story about a young girl's first love, about how she grows up influenced by this love coming from a fairy tale. Indeed, this is a fairy tale about the first love…”
Jonas Aleksa: “Where can we find greater wisdom than in a fairy tale? And if we hear marvellous music by a great artist, one can hardly expect a greater impact.”
