Storytelling programs

Standard Storytelling Programs include:

The Land of Dragon Riders

Hungarian folktales, legends and stories for children. These tales take you a journey halfway around the world and far into the past; up and down the World Tree, and beyond the Ocean of Tales. Here be dragons. Lots of them.

The Princess in the Shroud

Hungarian folktales for adult audiences. These tales and legends allow us a glimpse into times long gone; they tell us magic, faith, love, bravery and voyages into other worlds. Hungary is the world of noble fae, haunted castles, legendary knights and many battles. The stories bring these almost-forgotten images alive.

Dancing on Blades

A magical collection of tales from a talented Hungarian storyteller who lived a hundred years ago. Folktales about people walking on clouds, fairies turning mortal, trees that have their own king – the stories of Pályuk Anna are filled to the brim with miracles, humanity, and the melody of words. (These tales will be available January 2018 in an English language collection!)

Roses in the Mountains: German legends of Dwarves and Men

A truly epic storytelling show, based on the medieval German Book of Heroes. Two worlds collide: Verona, ruled by the fire-breathing, dragon-slaying King Dietrich – and the Realm Under the Mountains, with a mighty Dwarf queen on its throne.

The Demon’s Daughter and the White-Haired Prince: The legend of Zal and Rudabeh

One of the most enchanting love stories of the world’s epic heritage, the story of Zal and Rudabeh from the Persian Book of Kings is a true masterpiece. This one-hour show is filled with magic, passion, loss, and redemption, as an unlikely love blossoms between an exiled prince, and the daughter of a cursed family.
