The Fisherman and His Wife

Greed gets you nowhere!

The Fisherman and his Wife, a well known central European magical fairy tale written down by the Brothers Grimm, is performed with large traditional hand puppets, a glittery, cubist fish, and beautiful appliquéd and painted scenery in rich central European colors. A tale about greed, the story conveys the message that happiness is not tied to material possessions.

This version stays close to the original Grimms’ tale.
