This enchanting musical begins with a song by the greatest of all wizards:
"I, Gandolf, Best wizard that you'll see, Bid the darling spirits, Send the band of dwarves to me." And as he sings, we hear the spirited marching song of the dwarves who pour down the aisles and onto the stage, singing bravely as they come: "Thirteen mighty dwarves, Straight and strong and true. With just one goal in view − To slay the awful dragon Smaug. He took our home and burned and looted, Now he must be executed. Thirteen mighty dwarves."
The reluctant Hobbit hero Bilbo Baggins is asked to join the band, for they can hardly hope to succeed as an unlucky thirteen. Bilbo finally agrees to the adventure! They encounter the dangerous trolls, then escape into Goblin country where Bilbo finds a gold ring with magical power. It's a ring of invisibility. Bilbo is cautious and thoughtful but saves them in every crisis, even in the climactic scene with the dragon Smaug.”
