1908 play by Belgian playwright and poet Maurice Maeterlinck. The story is about a girl called Mytyl and her brother Tyltyl seeking happiness, represented by The Blue Bird of Happiness, aided by the good fairy Bérylune. 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. When Bérylune says that it is wrong for the rich not to share their cakes with Tyltyl and Mytyl, the boy corrects her. At the end of the play, Tyltyl shows what he has learned about happiness.
He looks out the window at the forest and remarks how beautiful it is. The inside of the house looks much lovelier to him than it did before. Also, he creates great happiness for another by giving his pet bird, which seems much bluer than before, to the sick child. Directed by Gust Van Den Berghe and presented at the 2011 Cannes festival. 13 Cubist painting by Jean Metzinger. The Blue Bird was dramatized as a half-hour radio play on the December 24, 1939, broadcast of The Screen Guild Theater, starring Shirley Temple and Nelson Eddy. L’oiseau bleu, 1919 opera by Albert Wolff, libretto by Maurice Maeterlinck based on his play.
