The original work "L'Augellino Belverde" by Carlo Gozzi is a philosophical fairy tale told in three acts. Two abandoned royal children, Renzo and Barbarina, who grew up in the butchers' households of Smeraldina and Truffaldino, are well on their way to developing into clever pranks, for whom all actions are reduced to selfishness. Gozzi, contemporary and opponent of Carlo Goldoni, lets them experience a series of wonderful encounters until the two researching nihilists see a light. Among other things, talking birds and statues as well as the power of love play a big role. (Source: theatertexte.de)
