Reviews from Past Producers

A secular tale perfect for holiday concerts.

Morozko has a Slavic winter tale for you. Who is Morozko, you ask? You may know him by his other name: Jack Frost.

Poor Marouckla is tormented by her mean stepmother and her horse-faced stepsister. They're determined to make Marouckla's life miserable. They send Marouckla up the mountain for fresh strawberries. But everyone knows strawberries don't grow in winter.

Based on The Twelve Months, a folktale by Aleksander Chodzko.
