Here, the Prince fights a dragon and sings surrounded by bears, bunnies and for some reason, the lion and the walrus. Ugly turns beauty, the boys are flying in a balloon. Day quickly turns to night, winter gives way to spring instantly. Wonderful bells make everyone dance.

this duality rhymes with tell a story where at some point it happens a significant transformation of the "adult" characters: "evil sorcerer" is a noble sage, while the "grieving mother" - the insidious sinister. And actually it turns out Opera is not about the release from captivity, but about the confrontation of the darkness of ignorance about the struggle of light against the night. But any obstacles and challenges can be overcome, the main thing is to stick together and trust each other.
