The Story

Who has a curfew at midnight? Who has really long hair? Who has sharp teeth? All children who grew up with the Grimm’s fairy tales know the answers. But who has a solution, when the Prince is cheating on Cinderella with the Sleeping Beauty? The narrator is eaten by the Giantess? Rapunzel is depressed because of the years in the tower? Little Red Riding Hood is totally cheeky? The witch loses her magic powers and Jack and the Beanstalk is not lucky at all? The only remedy can be singing to make life more bearable. Let your emotions go wild! And of course everybody lives happily ever after. Nearly everybody.
