"The Steadfast Tin Soldier" is not a conventional tale. It is a parable of the life in the infantile and candid world of the toys. Because of that, the protagpnist, a little soldier with an only leg, has not the temper that must have a soldier; he has also a temder and romantic heart, that confers him the courage to face the difficulties of the destiny.
As a good soldier he will never complain of his misfortunes and he will face the dangerous with the strength of a knight. The platonic love to a fragile and delicate dancer, will maintein the desire to go back with his love.
This version for puppet theater respects the whole textbook that imagines the author to introduce the spectator to the marvellous and singular universe that Hans Christian Andersen created.
