Sea-maiden (large-scale music puppet play)
The sea-maidens were singing and dancing all the day in the deep sea, and they were anxious for nothing. While the little princess Helen yearned to the life on land. So she asked the witch in the sea for help, and had the poison given by the witch. Helen suffered from the serious pain, but she became a pretty girl with two legs which cost her beautiful tail and sweaty voice.
Helen came across the prince and fell in love with him deeply. But unfortunately, the prince used to swore to marry the girl who saved him on the beach. But he didn’t know Helen and the girl were the same person. Helen was so sad because the prince would marry very soon, but Helen still couldn’t speak.
The color clouds had changed into dark, and the sea became feculent. The witch gave Helen a knife and told her that if she killed the prince she could get the tail again and return to the sea, or she would became the bubble and disappeared forever. Helen was so contradictive and she heard her benign mother and her lovely sisters were calling her------Helen threw the knife off, and meanwhile she got the voice again. The prince recognized her voice, but Helen’s soul had flown towards the heaven, where she became a daughter of the God.
