Song Of The Swans is a timeless play by an acclaimed kazakh playwright Dulat Issabekov, that transcends culture, language and religion. The fairy-tale tells a story of two lovers, Zhibek and Tolegen. On their wedding day an evil ruler kidnaps Zhibek and gives her forty days to agree to his own proposal. There is no escape from the tower of Bekezan's castle, but the old legend says that “if your love is pure, you can turn into a white swan…” As with all fairy tales and fables the characters face perils, battles and frightful moral choices.
