It was so glorious out in the country; it was summer; … and here sat a Duck upon her nest; she had to hatch her ducklings…yes, that’s right, that is Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale. It is transmitted from mother to son, father to daughter, grandmother to granddaughter. We all know it, we all read it, we all listen to it, and maybe we all have at some time lived it?!

A fairy tale or reality? A dream or a destiny?

One wonderful, captivating and enriching story. A story that we will present to you. A story that you will fall in love with. A story that you will find yourself. Every one of us, little or grownups. A story about the good and beauty, which look for their place under the sun, for their way towards perfection, for the fire in the heart.

Will we find it, will it warm us up?

You will find out! Let the tale speak…
