With its kind and delicate humour, the fairy-tale musical, whose original version was transferred to the Czech context by Jiří Voskovec and Jan Werich, underpins not only the ancient wish for the triumph of good over evil, but mainly the urgent feeling that there is only one place we can call home. And how a person can feel when home is far away, "behind the rainbow"...
