A comic dramatisation of the Bluebeard legend (owing more to Offenbach's opera than to Perrault's fairy tale). Three sets, simple props.
Duke Bluebeard lives in a grim castle and is feared by all. No one really knows what dark things happen in his castle. Having disposed of wife number five Bluebeard decides that Boulotte, the local May Queen will be his next wife, little knowing what he has let himself in for! Presenting his new wife at the court of King Bobeche and Queen Hortensia he spies their daughter Princess Marie and immediately decides that she shall be wife number seven. He orders his personal inventor, Popolani, to make the arrangements and proceeds to the palace. Challenged to a duel Bluebeard apparently kills Marie's fiancé, Prince Bruno, and demands the princess's hand in marriage. Suddenly Boulotte and Bluebeard's previous wives reappear and confront him.
