What can possibly happen on an innocent school trip...? A fun entry into the world of opera for younger as well as older audiences.

This fairy story for audiences young and old, inspired by Božena Němcová, about the fearless shepherd Jirka, the marriage-obsessed Kate and the betrayed devil Marbuel, returns to the stage of the Mahen Theatre after a lengthy absence. Although the stage teems with devils, they are not the dark demons and cruel rulers of hell, but the devils of Czech fairy tales who are easily duped by cheeky Kate and clever Jirka! This fairy tale, where bad people find redemption and cleverness and bravery triumph over hell itself, where pots and wooden spoons float around and cheeky Kate frightens even Lucifer himself, will take you back to childhood years full of gentle humour and happy endings. So come with us to Mokrá Lhota, where some very strange things are going on at the castle...

Performed in the original Czech with Czech and English subtitles.
