„The journey following the stories of the jungle has inspired new longing and determination. Our eyes have now grown accustomed to the dark corners of the jungle, but neither do they shirk the bright midday sunshine, revealing the wild beauty under the treetops. We shall go back to the place we have already visited before at a moment of sparkling happiness, but it shall be like the first time. We have to go back. Music, sounds, movement, sweet scents and wildly beautiful images all disappear and re-emerge in front of our eyes. We cannot resist the colourful world of the Jungle Book with its celebration of friendship, theatre, and life under the big top. What we have hoped for has not let us down. We want to revisit and relive it.”
