Published in 1836 in Danish, 'Thumbelina' or 'Tommelise' is one of Hans Christian Andersen's most famous fairy stories. Don't miss Astoria School of Ballet dancers performing in this adaptation by Director Margaret Wall.

Thumbelina is a beautiful, tiny girl – no bigger than a human thumb – who 'hatches' from the inside of a tulip. She is so tiny that she lives in a walnut shell. One day, a frog comes by and spies her asleep in her walnut shell, thinking what a fine wife she would make for her son, the frog scoops up the shell with Thumbelina in it, and she makes off with her. Thumbelina resists the frog's attempts to pair her up with the frog's son and escapes with the aid of a fish and a butterfly. But Thumbelina is then captured by a stag beetle, who gets rid of her when his friends express dislike for her. Out on her own in the cold without a friend in the world, Thumbelina fears for her life when winter sets in. But a friendly field mouse offers her shelter and suggests Thumbelina marry her neighbor (a mole). Thumbelina pooh-poohs such a suggestion, despite the field mouse's persistence in pressing the match.

Thumbelina escapes once again to escape this pressure, running away to a distant land, accompanied by a swallow she'd helped during the cold winter. Thumbelina meets a tiny flower-fairy prince, who is a match for a maiden of her size, and the two fall in love and marry. Thumbelina becomes Maia and accompanies her new diminutive husband on his travels from flower to flower.

Doors open at 1pm and 5pm.
