Peter Pan – The Beginning of the Fable
The story of a mischievous boy who never ages was produced by the novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie at the beginning of the twentieth century. The creation of the character was initially meant for adults, the story line was not exactly a fairy tale back then. Following the release of the novel, the story was adapted into several novels and plays and was republished and released under different titles as well. Now with the story being performed in ballet, it is all the more interesting to see this naughty, never-aging boy as a ballet dancer.
A Sneak-Peek at the Story
The story begins with four children of the Darling family left in the care of nursemaids. Although Wendy, Michael, John and Peter dread the nurses, they are happy because fairies regularly visit their nursery. Due to an unfortunate accident, Peter somehow goes missing from the family. One evening after their parents have left for a party and the three children have gone to sleep, Wendy dreams of being among the shadows. Her dream turns into a nightmare and she is mysteriously saved by a familiar shadow. As she wakes up, she sees a boy with strange appearance enter her room and introduce himself as Peter Pan.
Peter then takes all three children to Neverland where his own Lost Boys are impatiently waiting for him. He then tells them the interesting stories and dazzling adventures of visiting Wendy’s world. Later the same evening, the Neverland receives some evil guests. Captain Hook and his pirate crew come to capture one of the mermaids and as the events unfold, they come across Peter Pan and his friends. A battle follows but Wendy’s smartness and Peter’s bravery saves the day for all.
The detailed thrilling events remain a matter for the audiences to watch for themselves. Small wonder it is to see Peter Pan tickets being sold in such large numbers. Theatre fans are excited to watch the magical fable come live on stage.
