Christian Anderson story. A
swallow tells the story of Thumbelina, a tiny girl grown from a seed, who

oversized world, she has many adventures. Thumbelina
is a touching, coming-of-age story with the message that anyone can find their
place in the world with enough courage and perseverance. England composer Chris
Seed and lyricist Maxine Gallagher have granted MTA exclusive rights for the
U.S. Premiere of this fantastic show.
