Munĉaș and Munĉeșîță

Description: János Orsós narrates a fairy tale in the Arĝelean vernacular. Several symbolic elements resemble the “Cinderella” fairy tale, such as the shoe and the character of the step-mother and step sisters. However, the characters involved and the symbolic elements also deviate considerably.
