The Street of Andersen displays the intertwined story of Hans Christian’s life, his childhood, and his tales. The Long Hall of the theatre turns into a street where 140 dwellers from the age of two to seventeen mess around, where The Emperor’s New Clothes and The Ugly Duckling tales are taking place, and your heart will hurt when the loved ones of characters are lost. However, Hans Christian Andersen used to say: “a fairy tale never dies, and love and compassion must live in the heart of every human being”. This is why these tales can bring the young and the old together and help us understand the world of the greatest storyteller.
