Opening of the 21st festival Mini Summer

17:00 after motives of brothers Grimm - Vesselin Boidev: The Frog King
Location: Križevniška ulica (in case of rain in Mini teater)

This is a story about a Princess who lost her golden ball and a Frog who finds the ball in puddle and brings it back to the Princess. But in return for the golden ball, the Frog demands the Princess' love. The story deals with the ever-present demand for compromise and its message is dedicated at all young princesses. It points out the possibility of looking at things from a different point of view - what at first sight may seem ugly, usually requires us to have some patience in order to discover its true beauty.

Little Sleepy Star

There is a star on the sky, who puts children to sleep, leads sailors over the see and helps the poet find proper rhymes. She has long, golden hair and goes by the name Little sleepy star. She often oversleeps and is late for work, and therefore she creates a chaos on the Earth. Children cry, sailors don't find their way and poet doesn't find rhyme for the word 'pot'. Mr. Moon sends her on Earth. She can return to the sky, when she proves she is smart enough to return.
