The Green Musician

The Green Musician

by Mahvash Shahegh

If you had just one chance to achieve your dream, what would you do? Long ago in the land of Persia lived Barbad the musician, whose only wish was to play before the king. When his way is blocked by a jealous rival, Barbad’s solution is simple: hide up in a tree and wait for the king to arrive! Find out if Barbad can defeat this villain. Adapted from the 1,000 year old story found in the Persian epic Shahnameh (“Book of Kings”), this universal, light-hearted story teaches the importance of overcoming obstacles, patience and determination in reaching one’s goal.
