Blue Bird by Maurice Maeterlinck, First Edition
The play has been adapted for several films and a TV series. The French composer Albert Wolff wrote an opera first performed at the New York Metropolitan Opera in based on Maeterlinck's original play, and Maeterlinck's innamorata Georgette Leblanc produced a novelization. In the opening scene, the two children gleefully describe the beautiful decorations and rich desserts that they see in the house of a wealthy family nearby. The theme is emphasized again when the children meet the Luxuries, particularly the biggest one of all, the Luxury of Being Rich. When Tyltyl turns the diamond, the hall is bathed with a dazzling brightness, and the Luxuries run wildly in search of a dark corner where they may hide their ugliness from the ethereal light. At the end of the play, Tyltyl shows what he has learned about happiness.
