A tin soldier and a paper dancer are star-crossed lovers in an unconventional tale about fate, love and uniqueness told through one of the most ancient forms of theatre artistry – puppetry.

A true classic by Hans Christian Andersen, the story revolves around a distinct and peculiar toy soldier with only one leg. Ostracised from the others, he meets a paper ballerina in a pirouette and immediately falls for her. Out of sheer jealousy, a jack-in-a-box pushes the soldier out of the window which then brings him on a journey right back to the girl of his dreams and ultimately, to his final destiny.
