The queen has died. The royal household is not only in mourning, it is also no longer functioning properly. The whole country is in turmoil. Who will find a new wife for the king? The king's advisors set off in sailing boats in search of a suitable queen. They dock and hear beautiful sounds on land, which they follow. And who do they find? Helga, a beautiful woman with shimmering long hair. The counsellors are able to persuade Helga to travel to the king, because the king's fate has touched her. The two marry. The story now takes a new turn, as the king's son Thorstein still has to break a curse and find the horse Goldhuf on an adventurous journey. Can he defeat the nasty giants? And what role does Thorstein's dog play? Anna Gitschthaler tells, plays and sings this fairytale story based on Icelandic fairytales together with the audience. They dance to music by Iannis Xenakis, Icelandic folk songs and music by Anna Thorvaldsdottir, who is Creative Chair of the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich.
