The Brothers Lionheart (Vennad Lõvisüdamed)

A fairyatale by Astrid Lindgren

Now I’m going to tell you about my brother. My brother, Jonathan Lionheart, is the person I want to tell you about. I think it’s almost like a saga, and just a little like a ghost story, and yet every word is true, though Jonathan and I are probably the only people who know that.

This is the beginning of one of the favourite books across generations by Astrid Lindgren. Along with Pippi Longstocking, Karlsson-on-the-Roof and Rasmus and the Vagabond, her magnificent fairytale published in 1973 belongs to the world-famous author’s more mature period, when her adventurous and witty narratives already included a dose of melancholy and gravity. Therefore, The Brothers Lionheart has perhaps the most “ageless” target audience. Younger theatregoers can root for the colourful story that takes place in Nangijala where the Rose Thorn Valley is freed from the evil tyrant Tengil; older theatregoers can contemplate friendship, brotherhood, dignity and the fragility of human life.

Premiere on February 5, 2022 at the Grand Building of the Vanemuine
