Adapted from the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tale.
English Adaptation of Book & Lyrics:
Rapunzel is a princess like no other: her mother gave her some magical powers the day she was born. Her aunt, the wicked Erebia, has kept her imprisoned up in a tower for 18 years, and uses the powers of her niece to reign over the North-North-East Kingdom. Rapunzel has now become a beautiful and determined young woman: she keeps on dreaming about adventures and freedom. But there’s one single solution to free her and bring harmony back in the North-North-East Kingdom, which has become the Forbidden Kingdom: a true love’s kiss from a Prince Charming.
And as it happens, in the South-South-West Kingdom, a young prince has not found love yet, despite the insistence of his father to introduce him with “Noblettes", who are all as single as disconcerting! But there’s one single problem: this awkward boy pictures himself as a Prince Adventurer more than a Prince Charming… The day when he and his coward sidekick Olaf explore the Forbidden Kingdom, they come upon Rapunzel.
An encounter which might change the direction of this story… But do you still believe in fairy tales?
