The Knight with an Iron Heart 5+

Ana Đokić / 40 min

Here is a knight who does not dare to take off his helmet because he is afraid that he is terribly ugly, has ears that stick out, and a big red nose. Here is also a princess named Eleonora, who is immensely bored, spending her days alone and stuffing herself with chocolate sweets, staining all her cute clothes. Here is her nanny, Dada, who continually reads love stories and does not care about the princess. Here is the unusual horse Rjavko, whom the knight rides around the world, searching unsuccessfully for enemies to defeat. And finally in the show there is the frog Žabec, who has gone astray and actually comes from another fairytale.

Why does the knight have an iron heart? Will he and the princess finally meet and fall in love? And what to do with Žabec? Not to give anything away, let us wrap it up in Dada's words: "Everything will turn out alright, you'll see. Everything will turn out alright." And that is the way it should be.
