About the performance

What do little mice do with healthy white teeth they pick up from beneath the pillows of our children? It is extremely urgent that the two brave mice spill the gums of the baby Tinkara with the magic powder, so that her teeth may start growing. On their way, the two mice are in great danger because of the terrible tom-cat Barabon, so they ask for help the famous detective, the dog Olaf.

This is a nice and educating story about friendship and moral values wrapped into a wonderful fairy tale rich with imagination.
