Meet the Main Characters of The Most Incredible Thing
The Most Incredible Thing is a fairytale pop ballet bringing to life a kingdom of colorful characters. Get to know the four main characters – the king, the princess, the destroyer and the creator – and the importance of an incredible clock…
In search of a husband for his daughter, the king announces he will award half the kingdom and his daughter’s hand in marriage to whoever can invent the country’s most incredible thing and present it in a competition at the palace.
Rebellious and confident, this teenage princess longs to fall in love with an incredible man but is worried he won’t live up to her father’s standards. The King wishes to find a man worthy of the kingdom and his daughter, but she would rather be jamming out to pop music in her bedroom than living the monotonous life of everyone else in the land.
Leo the Creator
Leo, a dreamer and creator, escapes the oppressive routine of the rest of the kingdom and wishes the same for the princess. Though he is truly in love with the princess, he worries if his talents are incredible enough to convince the King to let him marry her. With help from three muses, he enters the King’s competition, hoping his clock will win the title of “the most incredible thing.”

The clock, created by Leo with the help of three muses that wins the King’s competition, has its own incredible stories to tell. What can happen when a clock has a mind of its own?
Can Leo save the princess from the arms of evil Karl and rescue the citizens from the grind of their daily lives? See if creativity overcomes destruction and find out what truly is the most incredible thing!
