With this work Bambalina made a qualitative leap. A text constructed ex professo, the merger between marionettes and actors, the desire to create a musical comedy, serious support from the musicians who composed the score. The text is mythical, integrating the components of the children’s tale without renouncing a message that is a tad progressive. The music and the songs sound good and the conjunction between puppets and actors is very well achieved. The construction of the puppets and their handling are practically perfect. A good work that demonstrates the level achieved by Valencian puppetry.
