When the Woodbreaker/Lomidrevo turned seventeen, he set off to explore the world and met other giants of the Tatras – Ironknead/Miesiželezo and Hillbreaker/Valivrch. The three set out to liberate three beautiful princesses captured by three bad dragons. The pretty, captivating, thrilling and humorous fairytale by Ľubomír Feldek will tell you whether the three giants succeed, how they handle the dragons and the difficulties made to them by the cunning Yeardbeard/Loktibrada, whether all three stood strong in the tests and whether they also had as big a heart and soul as is their body. This is a family production for all, young and old, small and big, powerful and weak, in sum for everyone who believes that one can not only have fun in the world of fantasy, but the elderly can become young again, the small ones can grow up, the weak ones become strong and the silly ones become wise.

Running time: 2 hrs with one interval
