The set is a big, old-fashioned suitcase modified as a musical instrument and also depicting the forest. Forest creatures emerge from the suitcase and meet the small girl. She plays the flute, attracting the birds, which change into angels. She is rewarded for his music with a present. With the audience’s imagination, the branches, roots, grass and pine cones change into magical creatures.
The performance can be followed by a workshop production (birds made of sticks and feathers).
