The Three Suitors

A tale in which the woman has the right to choose

Reading recent phylogenetic research into the age of some folk tales, I came across a reference to The Three Suitors. I have long told it as part of The Silent Princess, but find it works very well on its own.

The recording was made on 21st Jan. 2017 at the International Theater Frankfurt.
(An appropriate tale to tell on the day so many women across the world - in Frankfurt, too - were marching against President Trump.)
