    Her ambitious father and overbearing music teacher want to turn the little princess into a prima donna. But her fairy godmother intervenes and secretly swaps her unhappy goddaughter with a marionette. The real princess is left in the custody of a goldfinch, a bear, and a wild boar in the nearby forest: here she finds at last friends who support her and with whom she can lightheartedly sing, dance, and laugh. The false princess meanwhile infatuates the court society with her perfect yet soulless performances – until she breaks down ... A fairy-tale with music that gives the children in the audience an important role to play.
