The Goose Girl
Composer:Thomas Pasatieri
Librettist:Thomas Pasatieri
Synopsis
A princess is promised to a prince whom she has never met. She sets out for the wedding, accompanied by her waiting woman, a talking horse, and a magic linen which contains three wishes. The waiting woman grabs the linen and uses one of the wishes to make herself princess. She then kills the horse and places the real princess in a job as a goose girl. The horse, however, is magic, and when the goose girl talks to him, the king overhears. He steals the linen from the false princess and restores it to the goose girl. She uses the remaining wishes to restore the horse to life and bring her mother to the wedding.
