    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.

    About

    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.
