Fairy tales

I’m in the middle of rehearsing for our annual panto, and as we are planning to entertain the Spanish as well as the English, we have to use Spanish traditional story names.    Last year we did “Cenicientas” which comes from the word “ceniza” (embers or cinders) – therefore Cinderella.   This year it’s “Blancanieves”.  I don’t think it takes too much imagination to work out that that means “White Snows” – ooops sorry Snow White.    Maybe next year we’ll do “La Sirenita”, “Ricitos de Oro” or even  “El Mago de Oz”


  1. Interesting to note your possible candidates for next year’s pantomime, but didn’t know that La Sirenita (little mermaid) could be made into a pantomime story, However, love the new word, to me anyway, of recitos, meaning, kiss curls.. “Ricitos de Oro” or Goldilocks has made my day ! Thank you Jane.
