A visual feast, choreographed to upbeat music that is accompanied by live opera sung by the Fairy Queen. The child watches in delight.

As the child is given a magical seed that turns into a giant flower introducing her to the energetic upbeat world of Earth. The music increases in tempo as the Queen introduces the child to a magical bird who takes to the air performing a stunning aerial hoop routine surrounded by four stunning butterflies.

This dramatic air world builds as five dancers in exquisite wind clocks and masks join the aerialist creating a truly breath taking moment.
