In the land of Elflán, life and beauty flourish. We meet Adelita, an adventurous and curious young elf eager to find what lies beyond the horizon. When the evil spirit of La Mancha kidnaps her mother and destroys her home, Adelita is forced to travel north to the land of the Hadaseñas in hopes of being reunited with her again. Little Duende is a new musical with the aesthetic tones of Disney Pixar's Coco and Guillermo Del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth. With fairy tales and mythological themes this musical comments on real world matters as it explores the border crisis, dual citizenship and the consequences of a dark family secret.
