    The Blue Bird as the desire for ephemeral, ungraspable happiness. An adventurous voyage towards the soul of the things and beings around us, the seeking itself being the destination – only during this seeking can the two central characters come to comprehend that human relations and compassion are that which can bring us the Blue Bird of Happiness.

    The best-known text written by the Flemish symbolist Maurice Maeterlinck, a Nobel Prize-winner, is one of the most impressive allegories of global literature, reaching out both to adults and children. The author’s fertile imagination, reviving the world around us, inspires theatre-makers to opulent staging and affords a great spectacle to everyone who likes being enchanted.
