It’s Christmas time and the town’s market square is festively decorated and buzzing with excitement. As the children look forward to a visit from Father Christmas, a love blossoms between penniless Pierrot and Columbine, who is imprisoned by her uncle Pantalon, just like Rapunzel by the wicked witch. With the help of the snowman, who has come to life, Columbine and Pierrot escape Pantalon.

 

Expect an engaging musical experience, as the three protagonists tell of their adventure entirely without words.
