Based on the Scheherazade’s narration the authors of the new production for the youngest children made their sea history: in fact, it is actually about three classic fairy (The Ugly Duckling, The Tale of the Fisherman and the Fish, The Tale of the Cockerel and the Hen) in a slightly unusual presentation.

A pair of sailors-storekeepers are getting hungry in the lower deck of an ocean liner. They decide to comfort the hunger with not a very commendable way – in transport boxes around them are a lot of animals ready to be consumed. The chosen (and tasty) animals not only do not want to be eaten but they belong to an unnamed circus and they can even talk. And this is what saves their “skin”. Each of the endangered animal narrates its life story to the sailors and so they have to fulfill the promises either they wanted or not and feed themselves differently.
