This incredible story happened in a fairytale kingdom just before the New Year.
One morning the tsar wakes up, and as it turns out – the holiday is close at hand, but in the royal chambers there is not even a Christmas tree. However, there is a Christmas tree in the woods, not simple, but magic – wonderful lights are lit on it, and it is in sweets and gifts.
But the Christmas tree is protected by the awful Nightingale-Robber. Without hesitation, the tsar sends Emelka to the woods. Despite the fact that he is naive, for the sake of his favourite princess Anfisa he will get the Christmas tree and win the Nightingale-Robber whatever it takes.
And the Father Christmas, the Snow Maiden and the aunt Metelitsa will help to grant wishes of the characters. The fairy tale is kind, which means that at the end all good characters will be happy.
Based on D. Golubetsky's play "New Year's story in the fairytale kingdom".
