ABSTRACT: “The performance The Forest of Songs has enchanted the audience with wild imagination, inspired by forest stage set and its inhabitants, who lived through adventures in all four seasons. Under the direction of Peter Kus, in this musical and puppet theater the whole stage was transformed in the forestall home of the bear and the hedgehog. The shows of this author echant us with images and sounds, with humor, delicate feeling and plentiful of ideas.  The actors Andrea Giordani, Bruno Kontrec, Gregor Hrovat and Ivan Štrok persuaded the audience with rich musical talent and great enjoyment of performing on stage.” Sophia Juen
